ABOUT: Bridal Veil falls come alive in strong rainfall and you can see where it gets it’s name from, when it spreads out across it’s wide base from a width of a few feet at the top. There are not too many angles available from the trail, but you can scramble a little up the left side for great side on shots with the cliffs in the background.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: The whole amphitheatre can be covered with a 14-15mm ultra wide lens and the very large falls (you are close to the bottom of them on the trail) can be covered with a 17mm or so. A tripod to soften the water flow of course and plenty of cloths to dry lenses as it can spray up if windy.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: A down then back up route from Leura Cascades makes most sense, unless you are doing the long loop out to Three Sisters which is a few km along the Prince Henry Cliff walk. From the car park follow the cascades, past the lookout above these falls and then down the many steps, walkways and rocks to the bottom.
