    Stevo's Track

    by iandsmith Updated Jul 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's another, and much less visited, lookout at Carrington Falls and that is Izard. It's reached by heading out on Stevo's Track, a trail that ultimately leads to a bush track that leads to the bottom of the gorge. This is not for the inexperienced walker.
    I walked (just over 2 kms one way) to where it takes the plunge but didn't go any further as I didn't realise you could and hadn't allocated enough time either.
    Izard's is only just over half a kilometre from Thomson's and offers views over the valley below and over to the top of the escarpment on the other side as you can clearly see in the opening picture.
    Scenes from the bush are in pics 3-5.

    Hindmarsh Lookout at Belmore Falls

    by swings Updated Mar 21, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Watch for the signs for Belmore Falls on the main street; if you turn south from in town, you'll soon see a roadsign clearly directing you to turn right, but don't miss the small street sign a short distance further on, where you turn left! The Falls are about 8 km from town.

    The sun was getting low in the west when we arrived at the Belmore Falls area, which is a part of the Morton National Park (also see Fitzroy Falls near Kangaroo Valley). With the sunlight fading in the Kangaroo Valley, we were greeted by the incessant, demanding mooing of the cows in the herds below.

    Belmore Falls

    by swings Updated Oct 25, 2004

    On the road to Belmore Falls, we didn't encounter any other cars, and there were no other cars in the parking lot. It's quite secluded, but apparently it has been a tourist draw since the road went in in 1837. And the falls were named for then NSW governor, The Earl of Belmore.

    What a beautiful waterfall, tucked into this little "corner" of the valley! These Barrengarry Creek falls plunge over 100 meters into the Barrengarry Falls Valley, part of the rainforest areas of the Southern Highlands.

    For those who are interested and curious, there's always more to see than meets the eye initially.
    Some of those things that the average tourist misses are shown here.

    Caution: Termites!

    by swings Written Oct 25, 2004

    This is one of the famous termite mounds of Australia. I only wish we'd seen one of the famous little echidnas slurping 'em up, too!
