When it comes to waterfalls, we are spoilt for choice here in New South Wales. From majestic single drops to awe-inspiring cascades that carve their way through a cliff face, nature knows no beauty quite like a waterfall.
Many of our most spectacular waterfalls are found deep in the wilderness – a challenging find even for experienced hikers. But there are a few places that allow full access to visit these beautiful sights. And one waterfall in the Southern Highlands even has a fully accessible platform above the falls themselves offering an unparalleled view back down the valley.
Known as Yarunga in the language of the local Gandangara people, the 81 metre Fitzroy Falls is one of the most spectacular of the many large waterfalls found in the Southern Highlands. It is certainly the most accessible!
It is home to the Moreton National Park Visitors Centre and offers a wide concrete footpath to the top of the falls as well as accessible facilities.
The nearby Burrawang Hotel offers is one of the best places in the Highlands to grab lunch.
