These aren't really falls but a swimming hole that can be very crowded. The car park is quite small so you may have to park some way up the narrow road.

Great on a hot day, I would suggest trying to avoid school holidays, however there is always space to a picnic blanket.

Well signposted - about 1klm to the end of the road where there is limited parking - a pleasant walk along the riverbank (on a not so pleasant concrete roadway) takes you past a number of tranquil pools eventually leading to a small waterfall -...More

This tiny place is quite pleasant. The falls aren't huge but nice all the same. Local birdlife is abundant. Bring your binoculars!

Hi, not 100% sure but you could go on the Translink page and put in your start and end destinations and see if there is any buses. Also Kangaroo bus line is pretty big here they might have a bus that does the route.
