See two beautiful waterfalls set in a natural sub-tropical rainforest. Walk through the filtered light of the forest surrounded by the towering rainforest trees with their tangle of vines, moss covered trees and that rich ‘earthy” smell of the forest. A chance to spot the forest wildlife including the shy pademelons (rainforest wallabies), brush turkeys, goanna and water dragons. You will marvel at the unique Natural Bridge (Arch) with the waterfall plunging into the cave below.
