Beautiful walk. We did it as an overnighter, sleeping at Thilba Thalba. Had previously done it clockwise, but prefer anti-clockwise going from the carpark past the falls and down the valley before the short and sharp climb up to Mt Thilba Thalba and then across to the campsite.

Very hazy due to dust and smoke but a decent amount of water coming over the falls. Been a long time since my last walk and it was even nicer than I remember.
