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).

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.

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.

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.

Did the walk with a baby in a carrier. A little bit rocky at the very beginning which was a little tricky with a baby strapped to my front but after that it was amazing.

Did walk from top carpark traveling anti clockwise. The top section had lots of long grass that has shot up with recent rains. There was a tree over the track furrher down but easy to get around. After recent rains the seasonal lagoon was over flowing and needed ro take the dry track around instead. Was really great to see. Falls are flowing well. I heard multiple lyerbirds on this walk. One barks as part of its call and another one mimics frog calls. Completed early on a weekday and didn't pass anyone. Great walk.

Always a nice walk - some beautiful trees

Lovely little hike at Witches Falls today :) Beautiful spot of rainforest with some truly impressive trees. Saw some albert lyre birds and my friend STOOD ON a SNAKE OMG!! Would very much like to come back here after we've had some rain. Some other people on the trail but not many. It was very peaceful.
3.3km 75 minutes.
