Fitzroy Falls, Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia

Great weather and not sure what to do?

Well if you enjoy easy walks through national parks with some spectacular scenery and cascading waterfalls, then Fitzroy Falls is for you.

We stopped in to Fitzroy Falls after our zipline adventure at Illawarra Treetop Adventures and given we were short on time, the walk was just right and well worth the visit.

Getting to Fitzroy Falls

Simply punch in Fitzroy Falls into Google Maps and it will take you there. It is best to set your google maps up while you’re still on 4G or WiFi as the reception is likely to drop in and out along the route.

At Fitzroy Falls Visitors Centre

There is a large car park at Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre, there is a small fee of $4 to park there and visit the national park, so make sure you have some change with you to use the parking meters.

The visitor centre has a café/kiosk as well as toilets (drop toilets as you would expect in a national park!).

The walk to view Fitzroy Falls

This is the best bit, it’s a short flat walk to get to the main viewing platform to overlook Fitzroy Falls.
