Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Very steep walk down and back out, but a nice waterfall and a very quiet area. Also be careful if your car is low - the road is easy for a 2WD until the very end, where there is one annoying speed hump which makes low cars scrape.

The area was lovely and as many have warned there is a steep walk and a tough drive with a 2 wheel vehicle to get to the “falls”

I wanted to add a review as the average rating being so high compared to other falls meant that even after fresh rainfall the actual falls were very underwhelming.

They are still worth the trip but expect more babbling brook then waterfall to avoid disappointment.

Epic waterfall, unlike any we had seen. The entry track was very manageable for our little van.
From the car park you take the path down to the right, past the Nethercote Falls Flora Reserve sign.
When we visited, the steep road was under construction, however we had no issues ducking through and making it across the river bed where the track begins again. There are some really fun jumping spots and the water was refreshing.
We would definitely recommend to anyone up for a little walk to enjoy this awesome secluded spot.

Went to Nethercote Falls .....well almost.
Off the main road you cone to a dirt section followed by a 3 way fork in the road. Take the CENTRE road. You can see the sign “Link Road” on the left just as you enter it (hiding behind bushes).
Go about 500m to the carpark.

The road is fine for 2 wheel drive vehicles in dry weather but is NOT SUITABLE for 2 wheel drives during wet weather (too tough and slippery).

Once you get to the car park you’ll have to walk. You’ll need good solid walking shoes. It is a very steep loose dirt road for about 600m. If you’re not fit, don’t attempt this. It is very steep. Only for the young ones I think. Absolutely don’t attempt this in wet weather...the road down will be dangerously slippery.

Don’t attempt this on a dirt bike either. Too many ruts and culverts and very loose steep surface.

If you want a nice country drive, continue on the Nethercoate road to Eden. Beautiful drive.

So lucky to be able to enjoy the beauty of the unspoilt Nethercote Falls. We love the scenery and peaceful surrounds of this untouched gorge and respect that these falls have claimed their share of unnecessary injuries from risktakers. The car park up top is just enough & has a bbq picnic area with a bush dunny. The 15-20 min walk in is a bit easier with runners, but scenic. Take a pack lunch and sunscreen and be prepared to jump off the cliff face. Awesome.

It is a bit of a walk, but worth it. It's protected so also good on windy days. Not much water in the falls when we visited, but it was enough. Beautiful water to swim in, nature, and gorgeous environment. We come here every year we holiday in Pambula. Make sure you copy down instructions as you will likely lose mobile phone coverage getting there. The caravan park may have a map as well.

Secret swimming spot in Eden. Was told about this place by a fellow camper. 660m descent by foot and a bit hellish hiking back, but worth it to swim in this little piece of paradise.

Went late December and had an awesome time. The water was perfect (on a 30 degree day) and cliff jumping was fun. The walk isn't long but down and up a steep hill so be mindful of that. Defiantly go to these falls while near Eden

We saw a sign for nethercote falls and decided to have a look. We took wrong turn as the signage is not very good, the road is not well marked and definately suited to 4wd. There are facilities, picnic tables and a toilet. The walk is not for the faint hearted it is steep and rough, well used by the locals, who we met and were friendly and helpful young men, there are fallen trees, and logs are used to cross the river. But if you are game it is well worth it. Definately a bit of a challange, take water you'll need it! But really good if your game!

I came here with my family during a road trip last November and these were the highlight for me for the entire trip. You can swim in the falls and many people were jumping off the cliff face into the pool. You can also start at he base of the river and make you way up to the base of the waterfall. The water is clean and transparent right down to the bottom. There is a challenging walk to the falls but is absolutely worth the visit.
