Situated on the eastern edge of the Southwest National Park, Adamsons Falls is an attractive waterfall accessed via a 6km return trail. Aside from occasionally muddy patches the track is easily followed in its entirety and should take just over 2 hours to complete.
The walk commences with an easy stroll through regrowth forests. The track is wide but littered with boggy sections. Gradually, the trail begins to climb and you weave your way through charming established rainforests.
For the next 2km, the trail undulates through muddy forests before steepening at the final ascent to the waterfall. Once at the falls, a number of tiered sections can be accessed via short side trails. The most impressive view is offered at the top and under the falls themselves. As the ground is incredibly slippery, care should be taken when walking near the falls.
Return to the carpark via the same route.
