Horseshoe Falls Rocks HazelbrookFalls

ABOUT: A popular route for waterfall fanatics taking in order, Burgess, Oakland and Horseshoe Falls. The second and third falls, Oakland and Horseshoe, allow you to get behind the cascades for some dramatic shots looking out and they are not too slipy. As usual these falls come to life after a good 2-3 days of heavy rain, so expect a trickle if there has been no rain for a week or so (roughly as in my images above).

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: Tripod & wide lenses a must. Consider a neutral density filter too for long exposures of 5-10s. As you can get close to the falls a good wide angle 17 to 35 is a must and bring a good lens cloth as the falls spray can get on your filters.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Parking at the link here take the route which is on the other side of the road from the small parking bay. It goes downhill through a wood for 15 mins and then follows the river down to each of the falls. It is easiest to reverse the route than come back along the road and a total time without stops of approx 50 mins, with photos 1.5-2 hrs.
