Fitzroy Falls Things to Do

    view of the falls from 2nd lookout

    by Kate-Me Written Mar 10, 2005

    The absolute No 1 must see in the town of Fitzroy Falls, is of course the falls themselves.
    It costs $3 per car to visit the park/park in the carpark.
    There is a good visitor info centre about the park and a souvenir shop with it, and good toilet facilities.
    There are several walks, the longest of which goes to an additional waterfall.
    We took the first and second walks - the first is quite a short distance, to the first lookout point for the falls, but you can't see much there, so we walked on 10 minutes further or so to the second lookout - which was nothing short of spectacular, as you can see here.

    ignored by Lonely Planet we had never heard of Fitzroy Falls, we actually only stopped here to use the bathroom [no, it doesnt flush into the falls]

    For whatever reason, Im really glad we stopped, the falls are beautiful..........admittedly they were flowing very fast as a reasult of all the rain we brought to Australia, but even if they had been less forceful the sheer height of them and the beauty of the surrounding landscape is a good enough reason to visit

    Favorite thing: On the walks to the Waterfalls, there is also a lot of nice and typical Australian vegetation in the bushland, such as Banksia trees (pictured).
    We were also very lucky to see an Echidna busy ripping bark off a tree trunk looking for ants, off to the side of the path.

    Fondest memory: Equally breathtaking are the views down into the valley. This pic is taken from the 2nd falls lookout point as well.
