Nice walk through the forest

casual stroll.

Nice easy rainforesty hike. Started at Witches Chase then continued unto Witches Falls after the little lookout in the middle. You can start with either walk and do both in one big circuit, like a figure 8 (the end and start of the next circuit is the lookout). We did both of them in just under 2 hours excluding lunch break. Did this one with Josh.

Beautiful walk, but very muddy. Took a bit longer to complete than normally would.

Lovely walk through rainforest - although extremely wet and muddy.

Nice walk

beautiful walk. falls are lovely. unfortunately lagoon was dry. there is a section that is quite steep and exposed to the sun so would recommend doing it anti clockwise so you are doing the incline in the shady canopy section.

I was really tired when I did this walk from lack of sleep the walk was fine but I would suggest doing it after rain

We walked from the southern entrance all the way past the falls to the end of Witches Chase. It's a relatively easy walk with some sections of rough rocks near the end. Beautiful palm grooves, large strangler figs, the falls drop off a cliff of hexagonal basalt columns.

Lovely lagoon and falls after the rain. Most times I do come across an Albert Lyrebird on the trail (if it is not busy though).

Would do it again

An easy walk, took us about 1 hour and half (5km) with lots of beautiful photos. There are two ends, one is easier and one is harder to walk. If you want the easier way up, go from the opposite way of the public toilet (left as you walk out of the car) and vice versa. We’ve done this multiple times and usually with some wine tasting to start our day. Highly recommended.

A great walk. You can even spot some tree dwelling funnel webs down near the creek.

Easy walk, not many people around, but that could have been because of Covid. It was dry at the time, so the lagoons were empty. Wasn't spectacular, but it was serene. Heard some weird bird/animal call, going to assume it was a drop bear.

A lovely walk through stunning rainforest. We didn’t see any waterfalls or lagoon as it had been dry. FYI There is a public toilet near the car park at the intersection of Hartley and Main Western Road and a picnic area so this is a good place to start and finish from. It’s near the rotary lookout which is marked on some maps.

Great walk with little falls. The rain forest is amazing.

A little gem of a walk.

Daniel Wright on 24 May, 2020

A beautiful picturesque walk at any time of the year. It can be done over and over again as it varies depending on the season and how much rain. The largest tree that I have ever seen is on this walk. We have completed in both directions at different times and prefer to walk clockwise so that we are walking down steps (rather than up steps) and walking up a gradual sloped path.

Shazlex on 10 May, 2020

Super easy walk. We walked anti clockwise so were able to go down the stairs at the beginning. We took our 7yr old with no problems at all and it took us an hr an a half including a short stop for some sandwiches.
