Ebor Falls is widely touted as one of the best, and most impressive, waterfalls in NSW.

Go on, Google “Best waterfalls in NSW”.

Google wtf
Google, WTF?

I object to this outrageous statement.

I say this because, well, quite frankly, Ebor Falls really isn’t all that much of a sight to behold (from afar).

Luckily, for us, we’d only planned to pop into Ebor Falls on our way to Cathedral Rock, after camping in Chaelundi National Park.

Meh 1

You’ll occasionally see photos of people wandering around the bottom of these falls, and honestly, if we’d stayed a little longer, maybe we would have bothered to find the way down there.

Regardless, I’ve seen better.

I think the most disappointing thing is, you see Ebor Falls from this platform, and then you hop back in the car and follow a sign that says “lower falls” to reach an even further away viewing point.


When you get to the “lower falls” viewing point, this is what you’ll see.

Meh 2

All in all, my suggestion would be to merely include a quick visit to Ebor Falls on your way to Cathedral Rock, not drive 6hrs 35min from Sydney, or 5hrs from Brisbane just to see these cascading LIES.

Pack a picnic, watch the water roll off the rocks, and look forward to Cathedral Rock.

If you actually know how to hike down to the lower falls, please share your tips below. Though it is unlikely I’ll ever bother returning.



  1. I’d say your observations are meh. No appreciation for natural beauty 🤔 like most waterfalls – more rain = increased flow 🤣


    1. Haha, fair enough! We’ve seen some pretty wicked waterfalls elsewhere. Maybe the feeling of driving to a tourist trap after spending a few nights in the real wilderness brought the experience down.
