Allow four to six hours for the moderate to difficult 8.6 km round trip to Mitchell Falls so that time can be spent at the falls. The walk is over rough country but the track is marked and is reasonably well-worn. If in doubt, walk in close vicinity to the creek. Take care near the many cliffs.
You can stop and view Little Mertens Falls 800 m from the camping area on the way to Mitchell Falls.
Swimming is not permitted below the falls, due to the possible presence of salt water crocodiles.
Large and dramatic falls en route to the Mitchell Falls which plunge into a narrow chasm known as Big Mertens Falls 2.5 km from the camping area. Take care near the rocky cliffs.
