Reviewed 13 December 2017

This place is so surprising. The turnoff is on the road between Branxholm and Weldborough (less than the half way mark from Branxholm) and then there's a 13km gravel road which is fine for 2WD. You then walk about 100m to the dam wall and OMG it's like something prehistoric. You come upon this huge wall with "doorways" in it. One of them has been knocked through and you can peer through into another world of rocks and ferns. The wall is a discontinued dam and when you walk through you enter another world. It's a photographer's dream and I just couldn't get enough. This is absolutely a must see! This posting doesn't allow for photos but I will post them once it is approved.
