“Thoroughly enjoyable outing”
Review of Motor Car Falls

Motor Car Falls
Attraction details
Reviewed April 5, 2018

We camped at the campgrounds and then did the walk out to the falls. Really really lovely and we had a great time swimming. The walk was about 3.5k's but well worth it and you get to cool down in the water. The walk back is pleasant after a swim. We were really impressed with the campgrounds too - very clean and $6 per person was a good deal with $15 for a family

Visited in the wet season which made the relatively easy walk a bit harder because of the heat. This was all rewarded as we reached the waterfall and had a refreshing swim. Not many visitors that time of year, so we had the pool to ourselves for a short while. There current in the pool was fairly strong, and approaching the waterfall is not recomended in the wet season.

Well worth the hike in the sun! The waterfall is really refreshing. We took a swim and there were so many other people enjoying it. So bring swim suit, plenty of water and some snacks as you might spend some time at the falls.

There’s little shade on this walk so best to be prepared. While an easy walk, the last part has a few large boulders to clamber over. We took children between 2 - 5 years and it was manageable, but many had to be carried back after their swim thy were puttered out. There is a waterfall close to the carpark, Boulder Falls, which was beautiful. Only about 1km in. The end of the line however, Motorcar Falls was truly magnificent. I wish I’d taken some floating toys for the kids, because the waterhole was quite deep. A magical place, worth a visit.

this was my favourite place but i don't want it to be ruined by loads of tourists so i will just say it is a hot and boring walk in but amazing waterhole and rainforest pocket once you get there
