Decided to go somewhere different, and after a few minutes drive down Garvey track we arrived at Sheoaks car park. Pleasantly surprised to find very clean portaloos. We walked the 6km round trip to Lower Kalimantan Falls and back. The walk is not too technical,...More

We were lucky to visit the falls after the area had a little bit of rain. Very pretty but better after some rain.
