Carrington Falls

I promise I have several European blog posts lined up and in the making. I plan to deliver at least one a week after this post! But here is a photo diary of one of my more recent adventures in the Great Aussie bush.

Approximately one and a half hours drive south west of Sydney and twenty minutes of regular paced walking, you’ll find this gem of a waterfall. Dropping from an impressive height of 50m, the majestic falls is surrounded by draping evergreen foliage and insane rock forms you’d think were carved out methodically. But hey, if you don’t take my word for it, just have a look at these breath-taking photos!

To get to the look out point take the ‘Carrington Falls Loop Track’. It’s a really easy and pleasant walk, it would probabaly take you no more than 10 minutes to reach the look out. If you keep following the trail for another 10 minutes you will reach the top of the waterfall, where there’s a shallow basin. This is where it gets fun and a tad bit tricky. To get to the edge of the top of the waterfall, you’ll have to wade through the basin to get to the other side and then back again. So be ready to take of your shoes! When you head back there’s a fork in the trail, take the left track as it loops back around to the carpark and it’ll take you one-third of the time to get back.

At the base of the waterfall, there’s a lovely lagoon that I would say is definitely swimmable! I didn’t make it down there that day. However, I definitely plan on  going back and bringing my swimmers next time!

Happy Hiking everyone!!
