This spectacular waterfall (131m) can be seen from the main road but a walk to the base of the waterfall is well worth doing in any weather.

The track crosses the Bealey River and Punchbowl creek with the aid of two footbridges before zigzagging up steps (240 of them) through mountain beech forest to a viewing area just below the falls.

Return the same way.
