Route/Trail notes

The track is frequently walked with locals so the path is well defined. Park on road-side; walk through park. You will see walk on left hand side (near donation box). The walk continues behind some properties before dropping down into back creek gorge. Beware, walking paths are steep and narrow next to deep gorges. Keep young kids under strict supervision, close to you, and on the path.

Yes, this walk is closed off by a fence (surpassable), but still a nice little walk with a nice view of the falls.

Short easy walk, did it in slippers. The falls at the end is worth taking a look at. Head up on the opposite bank to walk up behind the falls and enjoy the view.

Great place to visit, Track is pretty well maintained.
the last section you need to head down a good section of stairs.
Very beautiful spot, not too many people there the day I visited,
The path back up is quite hard getting back of the steps.
Would not recommend to anyone with young kids. There is a bench half way back up for you to stop and catch your breath.

This one was a pleasant surprise. Decent walk back up the hill/stairs. Some scrambling.

The walk is a bit hard to find and you are walking a track behind backyards but once the track descends you can hear the falls.
We saw a monitor lizard and a couple of rock wallabies on our walk.
The waterfall is beautiful and you and swim in there too. A hidden gem.
