If you love a walk in the Australian bush along the side of water and water falls these falls are worth visiting. The falls are much more spectacular when there has been plenty of rain.

Nice spot to relax and for kids to play at the cascaded waterfalls. Nice scenery, very quiet. But beware of the extremely slippery rocks, hence recommended to wear (special) shoes or slippers !

I've been here many times with family. Great for the kids to do a bit of exploring and if you get there after decent rainfall the falls are fabulous. Well worth a trip

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.
