    KONDALILLA FALLS - *2*

    by balhannah Written Apr 15, 2010

    Kondalilla falls from a distance
    4 more images

    As I was doing the 4.6km circuit, I followed the trail down the Mountain. From here, the path deteriorates from a good path to a narrow track, with lots and lots of steps and plenty of zig –zag path to the bottom.

    On the way down, there were some excellent views of the Kondalilla Falls. These were beautiful, very long drop falls, I could only get the full length of them in a photo taken from quite a distance. The track takes you to the bottom of the falls, no hope of getting all of them in the photo from here.
    The track to this area you need to be very careful with, it is rocky, slippery and there are tree roots.
    It is well worth the walk to here.

    KONDALILLA FALLS- *1*

    Something has happened to his tail, should be long
    1 more image

    Coming down Kondalilla Falls road, we passed many Car’s parked on the side of the road of this popular National park. The car park here is usually full to overflowing.

    I walked down the track to a large grassed picnic area which had Toilets, BBQ’s, Picnic tables & chairs, Playground and even some Wildlife! A Goanna [lace moniter] was hanging around, they love meat!

    I decided to do the 4.6km circuit walk, which took me past 3 sets of waterfalls.
    The track at the start is good and fairly easy going, walking through Eucalypt forest. It wasn’t long before I was at the 1st waterfall, a rather pretty one flowing pretty well. A bridge led my way across it, then up some steps, and more easy walking to a lookout with extensive views over the mountains to a valley in the distance.

    The walk then descended down some steps, and started zig-zagging down the mountain to where the path divided, one going to Kondalilla falls, and one to the Rock Pools.
    If you are not real fit, at least walk to this 1st waterfall, it is easy going!

    Kondalilla National Park

    by iandsmith Written Oct 15, 2004

    View over the valley before heading downhill

    The drought continued its stranglehold, bushfires licked greedily at the edges, water was like diamonds on the Kondalilla Falls Circuit while I was there. The 4.6km track wove around the ridge top before dropping to the base of the 80 metre "falls". The rocky watercourse was bare though, the sun and winds stripping the life giving substance from the undergrowth leaving nothing for the stream.
    On a good day this would be nice walk, enhanced by the sound of falling water and, though I certainly enjoyed it, I couldn't help but reflect on what could have been.

    Shopping in paradise

    by iandsmith Written Oct 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a setting

    This is the Poet's Corner Restaurant resplendant with gallery downstairs and wrought iron surrounding the upstairs balcony.
    The paved area continues on to the right, past more and more shops designed to remove your hard-earned from you pocket. Of course, I didn't succumb. No, really. No, that wasn't me buying those delicious made-on-the-premises lollies. Someone who looked like me perhaps! I wish.
    The lovely tree lined streets and sheer variety of items available make this a shoppers paradise.

    Going cuckoo

    by iandsmith Written Oct 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside or outside it's attractive.

    What the heck, I thought I might chuck a few things in while I'm here!
    The clock shop is one of the must-see's at Montville.
    Swiss and grandfather clocks abound, the walls are packed with them, some so close to each other that the counterweights can't operate properly....................and don't come in here to find out the time - they're all set on different times!
    The effect is such that there is a continual cacophony of noise of chimes, cuckoos or bells echoing around the display room. When you learn not to turn your head at every sound you can then admire the many items for sale, all hand carved wonders.
    Even if you're not in the market for same (like us for instance) it's still worth a look.
