Belmore Falls, Robertson, Southern Highlands
Belmore Falls is a plunge waterfall with three drops. It is located in the Southern Highlands, near the town of Robertson, in New South Wales, Australia.
The waterfalls are 130m tall at the highest point, and are very easy to view from Hindmarsh Lookout.
Driving to Belmore Falls is a bit of an adventure, with a winding unsealed road through the bush, and driving over the top of the waterfalls themselves at Barrengarry Creek crossing.
Cars can drive right up to Hindmarsh Lookout where there is a car park, picnic tables and extremely basic restrooms. There is little to no mobile phone reception. Bring plenty of water as there is no drinkable water available.
It’s only a few steps from the car park to the Hindmarsh Lookout, which offers the best view of the falls. It does however require walking down several steps to reach the platform.
There is a short walk that starts at this location and follows the edge of the escapement to the top of the waterfalls at Barrengarry Creek. While it is possible to walk to the very top of the falls here, it is not advisable for safety reasons.
The walk takes about 30 mins (1.8km return) and has plenty of stunning views over Kangaroo Valley. It also, however, shares the majority of the walk with the road and cars, so keep an eye out for incoming vehicles.
