Hike to the gorgeous Uloola Falls. This well-built trail travels through the Australian Bush with beautiful views of the forest, sky and ultimately the amazing Uloola Falls. Ending up at the Uloola Falls Bush Campground you can choose to stay the night before continuing onto another of the trails or heading back.

The trail begins at the waterfall station commuter car park. Head down the small flight of stairs at the rear of the parking area to the forest where you will find a sign for the hike. Follow the path for 7 KM staying with the signs for Uloola Falls. The path is well cleared and marked. With a few minor hills it winds through forest and grassland providing a fairly easy extended hike, good for hiking or running. After you reach the Uloola Falls Bush Campground the falls are 100m away, follow the river at the campground to find the Falls. They require a short scramble down the left side of the falls to reach the bottom but its worth the effort for the pictures!

After reaching the falls you can camp the night, continue on the Uloola Trail, follow one of the other hiking trails that continue from the bush camp or return along the same path to the car park (there and back takes roughly 4 HRS).

Dry Australia

Fairly straightforward track that with a cosy campground. We were hoping for the waterfall but it was completely dried out :’( You’re surrounded in trees the whole time so there’s plenty of shade during the middle of the day :)
