Ellenborough Falls is located on the Bulga Plateau at Elands, approximately half an hour from Booyong. There are 15km’s of unsealed roads from Bobin and it is well worth the drive, taking your through the beautiful Comboyne Mountains. At 200 metres, it’s magnificent and is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere and the views are stunning!
A timbered walkway takes you 641 steps to the bottom of the falls. There are adequate and well placed rest spots and it is a comfortable 30 minute walk. When you reach the bottom you can feel the spray of the cool water which is fabulous on a hot day and we noticed quite a few people took advantage of the refreshing water and went for a swim. We would suggest you wear appropriate footwear as it can be quite slippery on the wet, rocky surface.
If you’re adventurous and want some more, there is also a 10 minute walk to The Knoll which has magnificent views looking directly across to the falls.
It might be useful to take a snack as the kids were famished when we reached the top. They enjoyed a sausage roll from the kiosk which is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and every day during NSW School Holidays. They also sell fresh bread, home-baked goods, coffee, drinks and light refreshments.
