A short little trail to a neat waterfall and some interesting rock formations.

Features River/Creek · Views · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Overview

The waterfall and rock formations that can be found along this route are really cool and unique. Definitely worth a stop.

Need to Know

Please be aware of the baboons. They are wild and vicious. We managed to get ourselves stuck when the pack came down from the cliff, very scary and wouldn't want someone to experience this!

Description

The trail is well marked right off of the parking lot. It's not a difficult journey, mostly flat and well marked. There are no restrictions to where you can, and cannot go. We wandered to the edges of the cliffs and enjoyed the sounds of the waterfalls. Explore this area! It's gorgeous!

Take in the view and the sounds of this waterfall near the Bourke's Luck Potholes. It is very peaceful.

WARNING: Baboons are vicious. They are not animals to mess with and will not hesitate to attack humans. They are as big as humans as well and have some gnarly teeth. If you see one, head back to the trail immediately.

The view of the Bourke's Luck Potholes. The potholes are a pretty interesting rock formation caused by the running water.
