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.

Worth the walk in, great for the kids.

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.

Unique experience and worth the walk

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

Good but hard work

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!

This hidden gem deserves to be treasured

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.

The road into the falls is missing it's signposts so you're not sure where to go. Take the middle dirt road on the way in. (There's three to choose from) Car park is at the top and a very steep walk down to the falls. Well worth the walk down and back, it's simply beautiful.

A lovely spot for a picnic on a fine spring or autumn day but the Forestry Commission doesn't want you.
Sep. 2014
Nethercote falls is a lovely spot, the spot is a little off the beaten track (road wise) but not far from civilisation. A picnic area at the road junction leads to a very steep road down to quite limited parking. You can walk this additional distance. From the bottom car park, a relatively short walk - maybe 1 km each way but some parts a little steep and the track not well maintained. You need to step on rocks/shallow water to cross the river so make sure you wear quick to dry or waterproof shoes. The trek leads to a stunning waterfall and swimming hole with small picnic area. Make sure you take water and a snack with you.

There is only one catch with this place - the Forestry Commission has decided it will be blocking the road about Sept 2015 from the top picnic area (Nethercote Falls Link Rd) and intends to block both vehicle and pedestrian access.
