Let the sounds of nature captivate you as your senses go wild with the Somersby Falls natural wonderland... this piece of tranquil heaven is located in the spectacular Brisbane River National Park and is unquestionably the perfect place to escape everyday life and enjoy the serenity of nature and its beauty.
Somersby Falls makes you feel like you are millions of miles away from civilization with its powerful sounds of cascading waters, birds singing in the towering lush trees, scents of the rainforest, to the cool dampness emitted from the surrounding rainforest that grips you. It is truly one of the most magical natural attractions on the Central Coast.
Waterholes and shallow swimming holes can be found at the Top of Somersby Falls
Somersby Falls is a sight to behold, cascading down from Floods Creek, and with walks that follow the falls from the top, middle and bottom, with all the walks allowing you to walk right up to falls to enjoy its sinkholes and swimming holes.
Do note that walking down to the falls can get extremely slippery, so do take care and always supervise children. (Tip: leave your picnic goodies in the car till after your walk, as the walk is steep, slippery and has steep stairs).
The start of the Somersby Falls Walk to the bottom or middle of the Falls
There are many boulders at the bottom of the falls which make a wonderful seat to sit back and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and sounds of the falls. The path does get rocky and requires climbing onto the boulders/rocks, so do keep this in mind.
There are two waterfalls lower down on a bush track. The top waterfall is stunning and is the largest one of the falls. It is located mid-way down the path, whilst the bottom of the waterfalls is at the bottom of the trail- which the trail becomes quite steep and slippery.
This is a ticketed attraction ($8 per car/per day)- be sure to get your day ticket pass located in the car park to avoid fines (rangers do come around). NSW National Park Pass holders do not need to purchase a day ticket pass.
