Turret Falls is a beautiful and unique twin waterfall, accessed by a scenic walk beginning from the Wonderland Carpark. The views across rugged sandstone slopes as you walk to Turret Falls are simply breathtaking!
The path involves steps and uphill sections, as well as some sections which run alongside sudden cliffs. Take care, and supervise children.
The first section of the track is mostly steps along a dirt track.
The middle section runs alongside cliffs and offers stunning views over the sandstone slopes. If you have taken the unforgettable walk to The Pinnacle
from the Wonderland Carpark, you will certainly recognise these slopes. See if you can spot the Grand Canyon
in the rocky landscape.
The last section of the track runs alongside a small gorge. You can hear the creek flowing below, and you'll know you're getting close to the falls when you hear the tell-tale rush of water up ahead.
You'll come to the top of Turret Falls first, where the creek passes through a series of beautiful rockpools atop a rocky outcrop before dropping into the gorge below. Views down over the waterfall can be obtained from the edge, but be careful of the drop. Do not approach the edge if the rock is wet, as it can get extremely slippery (as you may have experienced if you've ever taken a tranquil dip at the gorgeous Venus Baths
Follow the track around to the other side of the gorge, where you'll find plenty of rocky ledges to sit on and take in the views of Turret Falls. From here, with a bit of careful scrambling, you can make your way right down to the water at the base of the falls.
