Lower Cataract Falls

ABOUT: A 3 km long circuit that takes in (order) Adelina, Federal, Junction, Leslie and Cataract waterfalls. Each have their own unique character and you are able to get very close to each of them – the image above is low flow, so recommend you visit after 1 or 2 days of rain for best effect. The track is a bit overgrown in places but otherwise a moderate grade walk of about 3km.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: The walk can be done in 2 hours but that doesn’t include tripod setups and a few scrambles for position here and there. As you can get close to the falls a good wide angle 16 -35 is a must and bring a good lens cloth as the falls spray can get on your filters.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: After you park you will see signs guiding you down to Adelina first. You could also park further down Honour Ave (at the Cataract St junction) and do the circuit in reverse, starting at the bigger Cataract Falls.
