Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Joffre is a great gorge and waterfall pool to visit when water flow is low. The climb down to bottom is via many sets of well designed sets of steel steps/ladders with landing. These ladders are easy to use.

The waterfall pool requires walking through a short water path of clear water with a very gravelly bottom so is easy to walk on. The waterfall pool is good place to swim and relax with places to sit and relax. I did observe a few smaller and one larger lizard but keep away from the people. I great place to visit and relax.

Well worth the long drive in from the western entrance. Quite different from Fortescue. The road between Dales and Joffre is best tackled in sturdy 4wd. We took the long way round.

Joffre was closed in 2021 when we were there as they were installing the new handrail so the only view we had was from the lookout above.Its a completely different ball game when you can actually do the trail walk and into the Gorge.Its was spectacular.You will have to go hips deep in freezing water to get to the opening of the Gorge but its an easy walk.The new ladders in have stopped a lot of accidents but if you have mobility issue then dont even think about it.You basically walk into a huge circular gorge with a waterfall.Just beautiful and we did see people swimming there.Too cold for me

3 weeks before we arrived, the falls at Circular pool stopped. Better to go September in peak season to view this, still a beautiful location.

What an awesome walk. It is very quick but has a few steep stairs and tricky places. When you get to the bottom where the main falls/pool is you can either wade through water to get to it or scale the rocks, up-to you! The falls weren’t flowing but it still looked stunning. I would recommend when you get down the main metal stairs to go to the left also and see the gorge there, we even saw people stand up paddle boarding in the water there!

We parked at the car park in Joffre Rd and after a few minutes of an easy flat path we reached the Joffre Falls lookout. From here you have a great view of the pool and the surrounding arena at the base of the waterfall. You can also have a good view of the path that along the opposite side of the gorge descends to the waterfall. As we watched the waterfall, hundreds of little corellas (Cacatua sanguinea) flew over the gorge. The path to the waterfall starts on the opposite side of the car park. After a short descent you reach the top of the waterfall. From here you can see the water to make a few small jumps wedged between the rock before disappearing in the final jump. The trail then continues on the opposite side of the gorge where it splits into the lookout and waterfall directions. Proceeding for the waterfall you will find a first ladder then other ladders so that the climbing of the rocks is limited before reaching the bottom of the gorge. Here the river forms a large pool whose water was not particularly cold. Proceeding in the water no deeper than 1.3 m we reached the small gorge which leads to an amphitheater on the waterfall. It is a circular area half dry and the other half covered by a transparent pool. As it was the end of July there was a good quantity of water in the waterfall, making the scenery of the water that descended from about 50m into the large pool at the base wonderful. The water does not fall perpendicularly but after a first jump it proceeds horizontally forming an L before falling for another 20m into the greenish pool below. A breathtaking scenario made even more unique by the fact that for several minutes we were the only human beings present there. A refreshing swim under the waterfall was the final act of this wonderful visit. Since it was getting dark reluctantly we went back to the parking lot. One of the most beautiful points of the Karijini NP.

A beautiful gorge that is easily accessible from eco retreat. The walk along the top is good and the waterfall can easily be seen. Down in the gorge can be cool when the sun isn’t the water. Take water shoes and clothes to get wet as you’ll need them to access the whole gorge. Beautiful coloured rocks. The circular shape of the gorge is amazing.

I really liked Joffre Gorge, probably my 2nd favorite of the Karijini gorges after Hancock. The ampitheatre at the end is quite spectacular.

Note that ladders have recently been installed to replace the steepest part of the climb down. I heard a tour guide complaining that this had degraded the experience but I was quite happy to use the ladders to get down rather than scambling down the rocks.

We couldn't get all the way to the bottom as it's a Class 5 descent/ascent, but the views from the resort side and the look-out on the other were spectacular. I visited the top of the gorge several mornings just after sunrise for some beautiful views of the gorge and the "savannah" bush above.
