Southern Rockhole

Southern Rockhole is located on the Windolf bush walking track.

It is roughly an 8km return bush walk from the car park. You will be amazed by the beauty of the landscape on this walk, and when you arrive at Southern Rockhole you will be taken in by the waterfall and the escarpment's sandstone rock, absolutely stunning, magnificent.

Ferry Transfers.
The Southern Rockhole is a seasonal waterfall, located near the top of the first gorge. This Rockhole is 4km (each way) by foot, or alternatively you can catch a ferry. Boat ferries are available either one-way (with the option of walking one way), or return. The boat ferry will take you within 150m of the Rockhole, you are then required to walk the remainder of the way. The walk is not a man-made path, and is rock-hopping the majority of the way in. As such, a moderate level of fitness and mobility is required. Swimming is only permitted when the Rockhole has been opened by Parks and Wildlife.
