When I first looked at walking to the falls I was slightly dubious but the walk is a nice steady incline that you don't feel, chuck on a pair of good runners and the walk is nothing. You hardly feel like you have spent 1.5hrs walking to the falls. Once you get there you know the reason why you walked... More

This is a free, easy, level walk which we took after a couple of rainy days so the falls were full. We saw a few people on our way there/back but had the falls to ourselves which was a real treat!

This waterfall is probably a much better spectacle with some recent rainfall. It can underwhelm without the water. The walk is nice, can also be quite wet so good shoes are in order. Take your time with this one, it is much better enjoyed at a leisurely stroll, pay attention to some old mine relics along the way. Tips: -... More

In total the walk to and from the waterfall is 9.6 Km. It is through a cool rainforest and is on even ground, so it is an easy hike. The test to the nerves is walking across the gorge on an extremely narrow bridge in order to view the falls in all it's glory. For those who do not venture... More

It's an interesting historical walk...although it's a bit long (it said 2 hours, but took us maybe 2.5hours). Easy walk though and interesting really when you find some hint of the old train tracks on the way. It's a return walk, but never feel bored. The fall... its magnificent. if you had an iPhone make sure you take a slow-mo... More

It is a long walk, it took us 2 hours but we walk quite quickly and looking at the reviews most people allow 3 hours. The path is wide and flat but still a good idea to wear sturdy shoes. It had been raining when we went so there were a number of puddles and muddy patches to manoeuvre around.... More

This is a very easy walk, along an old 'tram' track so no hills (if you go through Tullah, stop and have a look at the little engine Wee Georgie Wood which used to work this line). The distance is posted at 4km one way at the start but a couple of hundred metres further on is an information board... More

These would have to be the most spectacular falls I have ever seen. After considerable rainfalls in the state the falls were pumping. The walk in follows and old tramway through pretty rainforest. Easy walking, allow at least 3 hours. Swinging bridge at the end near the falls is an experience!

Very impressive and beautiful waterfalls. Also a very nice walk through the forest to get there. Very easy walk so you dont need to be fit to get there.

The hike itself is very easy. The path follows the river and allows you to absorb all the sights and sounds. Just before the falls there is an old mind shift to explore. The suspension bridge was so exciting to cross and the views were amazing. Montezuma falls seems as though it could be in South America! It was absolutely... More
