Take a breath of fresh air and relax
Carrington Falls is one of the most beautiful falls in the South Coast for a number of reasons. Consisting of amazing cascades, waterholes, rock pools and the Kangaroo River plunging over 50m to the gully below; these are just a handful of things that make it the most beautiful.

Views of the Falls...

Carrington Falls is located at the Kangaroo River which crosses the western escarpment of the Budderoo Plateau. It is definitely worth a visit when you are at the Budderoo National Park.

Close up of the waterfall...

To get to the falls you just need to take the loop walk which takes approximately 25mins to complete. There are two car parks situated within an easy reach of the falls follow the signage.

The loop walk starts from the northern car park off Jamberoo Mountain Road. There are maps and walking guides at the Kiama Visitor's Centre.

Top of the waterfall...

There is also the Carrington Falls picnic area which makes the perfect pit stop to just sit and relax, enjoy a wood bbq (bring your own firewood) and simply enjoy the great outdoors.

To get to the picnic area turn onto Cloonty Road at the Carrington Falls sign and follow for around 2km then turn right into the Carrington Falls picnic area. The road (Suitable for 2WD vehicles) is unsealed so do take care.

A different angle of the falls...

The falls will certainly not fail to impress and also keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife in the area.
