So glad our accomodation hosts suggested we visit these falls. They were spectacular and it was a very beautiful short walk through the rainforest.

Great local waterfall deep in the bush. Easy walking path to viewing platform. Very interesting local ferns and plants at base of waterfall.

The falls are quite a way from anywhere! But once there you forget about the long drive! You have to walk about 15 minutes to get to the bottom. And it’s quite steep. I was dreading the walk back but it was surprisingly easy! Nice...More

Quite a nice and high waterfall, located in a reserve with the same name. Easy to find and ample parking on the road. Just a short walk and you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the falls.

The walk down is quite steep in parts but is manageable and mostly shaded. There are a couple of spots for viewing the falls on the way down but mostly they are obscured by foliage. We went in the afternoon and the sun was in...More

Definitely a must see when staying at St. Helens. Loved the way the falls split and rejoin several times. So many nearby attractions too such as Halls Falls, Pyengana Cheese factory, Pub in a Paddock and Shop in the Bush. Don't miss any of them.

Hi....sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I don't think that it would be suitable for a wheelchair to the falls as it is a little steep in some areas, and from memory a few steps along the way as well. Coming back... More
