Mannum Waterfalls


This popular bush walking destination, with moderate to steep walking tracks along Reddy Creek to the falls.

With Very scenic views, and an abundance of wildlife, along with fascinating geology.

Access to the falls is a walk from one of two carparks. The first car park is on the left, which leaves a one kilometre steep walk to the falls. The second carpark is situated above the falls with a short walk down to them.

Toilets are available and located 600 metres from the first carpark.

The most spectacular time to view the falls is after recent rains in the hills catchment area during the Winter months.

Need good walking shoes and water.

Not recommended when hot.

Plenty of seating is available inside and out for those who like to linger over their breakfast and coffee. Hear and see regular guest speakers and cooking demonstrations.
