Southern Rockhole

Southern Rockhole is located on the Windolf bush walking track.

It is roughly an 8 kilometre return bush walk from the carpark. You will be amazed by the beauty of the landscapes on this walk. When you arrive at Southern Rockhole, you will be taken in by the waterfall and the escarpment's magnificent sandstone rocks.

Southern Rockhole is a seasonal waterfall, located near the top of the first gorge. The walk to the Rockhole is 4 kilometres (each way) on foot, or alternatively you can catch a ferry either one-way (with the option of walking one way) or return - seasonally available. The ferry will drop you off within 150m of the Rockhole, where you are then required to walk the remainder. The track is not a man-made path, and requires rock-hopping most of the way. As such, a moderate level of fitness and mobility is required.

Swimming is only permitted when the Rockhole has been opened for the season.
