This would have to be the most beautiful place to have lunch ((pack your own family favorites). Peaceful and tranquil, with Bell birds singing for your enjoyment. Loved picnicing in such a peaceful place.

Somersby Falls is a lovely place. Actually, my daughter had all of her engagement photos taken there and they were stunning. The scenery made the photos gorgeous. They have certainly made a lot of improvements there over the years. Well worth having a look at.
