The picture on your website is not really Carrington Falls; it is a picture of the small waterfall at Nellies Glen, near Carrington Falls. Both are well worth a visit, as are other signposted attractions near Carrington Falls. The Kangaroo River, which feeds Carrington Falls,...More

The best part about this place is the walk down to the water hole. I love that it's on the cascades then you can swim at the end and it wasn't too busy when we were there. There is a permanant fire ban here though...More

Unfortunately we missed the rather insignificant and small sign indicating the falls are currently closed, and drove all the way in to be met with a big locked gate. Perhaps larger signage further out before the turn off, would save people a pointless trip.

The invisible falls. We heard that the Carrington Falls Lookout is still closed, and it is a shame. It is closed from the February of 2016, and it is terribly disappointing. The only balm to our wounds was that the Nellies Glen is open. This...More
