Waterfall in the Shoalhaven region
The picturesque Tianjara Falls is located within Morton National Park and is approximately 30 minutes drive from Nowra, 2 hours drive from Canberra and around 3 hours drive from Sydney.

It is an easy place to stop for a quick look and photo as there is very little walking involved. Located just off Braidwood Road the waterfall is sign-posted, so it is easy to find. It is a short drive to the car park where you will see an information bay providing information about the area, it's history, flora and fauna.

From the carpark it is a very short walk (less than 50 metres) to the viewing platform. The lookout is fenced and there is a small metal viewing platform from where you can view the waterfall.

If you look to your left you will see Tianjara Falls, which plunges 64 metres over the sandstone escarpment. The amount of water flowing on any given day will depend on how much rain the region has recently had. If you look to your right you will see the rugged Ettrema Wilderness stretching out to the horizon in the valley below.

A note to those who suffer from a fear of heights - be aware that the platform underneath your feet is partially see through to allow views of the valley below.

It is a lovely spot to view the area and the waterfall, however there are no walking tracks or other facilities (such as picnic tables or toilets) here. The spot is popular with rock climbers however.

Getting there:
From Nowra - approx. 30 minutes drive. Take Kalandar St to Albatross Rd and turn right on to Braidwood Rd. Follow along this road until you see the sign for Tianjara Falls.

From Canberra - approx. 2 hours drive via Nerriga.

From Sydney - approximately 3 hours drive via Nowra

Relatives live at Burrill Lake. Do they have to go to Nowra or can they go via Nelligen? They have a 4WD and are always looking for places to explore. We have done Pigeon House Mountain and can recommend to the fit and able. The views are worth the sometime strenuous 'trek'.
