I went right of the sign near the carpark to the picnic swimming area first. Wasn't overly impressed with it. So continued on to do the full circuit around to the falls. If you're strapped for time and only have time to do 1, don't bother going to the swimming hole.
The walking track is very thin & surrounded by long grass & boulders so be on the look out for snakes.
The falls are nice but only get a side view of them.

The drive in is about 12 minutes of dirt corrugated road off the main road. It can get scary going up the mountain for those afraid of heights as the road gets very thin (one lane in parts) and there is not guard rails.

The rock pools at the bottom are nice. Mini falls, public toilets and camping available.

A beautiful location with several walking tracks including a walk to the falls lookout. We saw the Ulysses butterfly a couple of times.

Best accessed by 4wd, this park makes for a good day out. Bring a bbq/picnic, your swimmers, some hiking boots, and a bunch of friends/family for a fun day

Beautiful peaceful campout nestled by the bubbling creek and falls that put you to sleep easily. Cool refreshing pools of natural clean water. Had a monitor visit our site and took care of watching for snakes.

Worth the trip, go and see some beautiful nature. I absolutely loved it. If anything, it isn’t friendly for those that aren’t able to climb and/or be on unstable ground.

I did this beautiful circuit walk with a local bushwalking group one Sunday and it’s an excellent half day walk to try (allow 3 hours). In terms of distance, the sign from the trailhead indicates 8km but my Apple-watch showed 7.5km (though we did take a brief short cut). The first 2km heads uphill quite steeply but it’s manageable for the moderately fit. There is also a short rock scramble heading up which may be challenging for some - so make sure you go with others so they can give you a pull up if necessary. The summit sees you at Turtle Rock (yes, a rock shaped like a turtle) for some excellent views out over Davies Creek National Park. The trail includes diverse plant life, impressive rock formations, & a nice swimming area near the end where you can cool off. It rained the day we did the hike which actually brought out some beautiful bush scents of lemon & eucalyptus. The area is also a significant for the aboriginal peoples - nearby is Davies Creek falls & aboriginal rock art at Bare Hill. The trail is easy to find however you need to travel several kilometres on unsealed road along Davies Creek Rd.

We camped at upper Davies creek. We were unsure if we could make it in our 2wd rental camper but we did!! Road is gravel but absolutely fine all the way to the camp site, small access road to actual campsite had some rocks and tree roots but were easily avoidable. Huge camp spot all to ourself with a flowing stream, very good campsite!

It certainly is an unpleasant drive withe corrugations but managable. Car parking insufficient for numbers for a Tuesday goodness knows what happens on a weekend. A managable but not easy walk to a lookout where you cant see a lot. The actual falls lookout is further down. Pretty falls

Peaceful, tranquility - This area is beautiful. If you like swimming, and hiking over rocks then this is a place you need to visit once we are allowed to travel.
