It is mostly an up hill climb with numerous steps to get to these falls. Needs a good rainfall before viewing. But nestled right in the bush, which has recovered very well after the 2009 fires. Small car park at the bottom in slushy mud...More

The road out to phantom falls is windy, only on car wide and windy. Had a few close calls with cars going to fats and not seeing us. It was very dusty and rocky. We turned around after the Phantom falls because we were concerned...More

Not overly strenuous (if you take your time) and not hugely time consuming, this is a good little stroll and insight into the surrounding woodlands of Marysville. Not a great deal of parking space near the walk’s commencement point, and not signposted as well as...More

The unsealed drive was bit of a surprise but that's probably because we didn't do the full read but never mind it was good. We saw some family sedans returning and that was a good sign and we proceeded. There's a proper parking spot for...More

Nice walk to the falls. Less tourists than Stevensons and more off the beaten track. Enjoyed and would recommend if you want something more remote

Located just outside Marysville heading towards Lake Mountain along the Marysville-Wood Point Road is the signed turnoff for the Lady Talbot Drive. The road, which runs along side the Taggerty River, is gravel with lots of pot-holes but still accessible for 2wd cars up until...More
