  • Easy access off the main road and not too far away from Canberra city. Waterfall itself only 400m away from the carpark and can be easily accessed with handrails for those needing extra assistance. Be careful of some rocks as it can be very smooth and slippery. Other than that it is a pleasant place for a picnic or just to cool off this Summer as it is in fact the biggest waterfall in ACT! I can imagine it can surge during heavy rain, so best be careful.
  • It was a perfect place to visit because it was 33°c but the water was icy cold. Great for taking pictures if you visit on a clear day. Bring your swimsuits!
