While we were at camped Manning Point I decided to go exploring the Three Brothers mountains in the hinterland nearby. An unsealed road leads to the Coopernook Forest Drive and then continues in a loop through Coorabakh National Park back to the Highway. We had this lovely waterfall all to ourselves.
An easily accessible waterfall in Lamington NP, a seven km return trip from the accommodation. There are two levels to this waterfall and many people reach what is called ‘Picnic Rock’ a large flat area of rock with a view of small creek falls going back into the rainforest. What a lot of people don’t realise is that the actual falls themselves are below this area and another km further walking. It is certainly worth the extra walk, though this year the access to the falls themselves was difficult with large rocks having moved in the previous year’s floods.
The King George River is deep enough to drive the bow of the boat right up to and under the falls at the end where they come over the cliffs. The 2 girl crew obviously had done this before and enjoyed themselves while we were busy snapping away. It was actually very hard to get a decent shot of the falls, the size was too great and we were either too close or when further away there was nothing to give a sense of scale.
