Glentui Waterfall tumbles over 40m


1.1 km return | 20 minutes return

The 43-metre high waterfall crashes into the plunge pool. A gorgeous hidden valley.


The Glentui Valley is signposted on Glentui Bush Road just after crossing the Glentui River on Ashley Gorge Road. The road is unsealed and narrow as it winds 4 km to the camping and picnic area at the end.


This easy graded track leads there and back to lookout over a waterfall.


Tree fuchsia are a notable deciduous species lining the track. The burnt orange bark peels off in papery spirals.
