Distance: 3.2km Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

From Scenic Drive, opposite the parking area, the initial section of track is level and gravelled but later descends steeply to the top of Fairy Falls (45 minutes). Track then makes an extremely steep descent partly down a boardwalk, beside the falls and continues downstream a short way before a gradual ascent to Mountain Road.

A very lovely and hidden spot, easy walk in a stunning area, even with a waterfall. Highly recommended.

Very long steep walk on the way out but rewarded with a lovely waterfall.
