Went to the first waterfall only, managed it easily on my own with a 2yr & 4yr old on foot the whole way! Beautiful little walk!

Excellent trail can get soggy in places, could do with some maintenance especially in the land slip areas but outweighed by stunning rain forest

I did this walk yesterday 23/5/2020 and the first section is very well tracked. to get to the second falls it is rough in spots and very slippery but easily manageable for an experienced bush walker. However to get to the third falls it requires you to use 2 rope sections that are above an overhanging rocky padded cliff that has nothing but logs and the water underneath with no support really under your feet. Quite dangerous and the ropes very very small. We managed to get across ok but on the way back some other bush walkers had used the rope and broken it off and fell down 2+ meters. Which then made it very dangerous and slippery to get back. Would not recommend anyone going if that rope section is still broken. You can take the stream and then possibly climb back up through the vegetation/land slip area to get back up to the track but would require a bit of effort. Heaps of fungi to see. Great area to see but definitely use caution with this track.

The northern end features a short well maintained walk to the Lower Falls. The through walk to the southern end of the gorge has two more waterfalls. It is a much rougher walk best for experienced walkers and is often slippery. It has recently been cleared of storm damage. The awkward section where the rope is placed is actually between the lower falls and middle falls. It is easily bypassed along the creek unless the water is high. This section and others used to be a lot worse! I will check the rope soon and replace it with heavier one. Only use this when the creek is in Flood. Replaced rope with 10 mm marine rope 1600 kg breaking strain and attached top end to galvanised steel picket which keeps rope above you. Still dodgy passage when rocks are wet. Use taped route to bypass across the creek - nice through the woods. You may get wet feet! The Top fall can easily be accessed from the southern, Kerrison's Road, end. Getting to the foot of the top fall is very rough, best avoided unless you are good off track. The middle waterfall access from the southern end is not hard apart from a short landslip section and makes a good shorter walk for experienced walkers. Lots of orchids in Spring .

Short attractive walk through temperate rainforest to the first of a set of three falls. Not a lot of water at the moment, but rain forecast for next few days, so should look great.
