Description

Fernhook Falls can be visited all year round. If you go in winter, the water at water gushes over the granite boulders, or if you go in summer, the water flow trickles into Rowell's Pool to create a tranquil paradise. 

The froth and bubbles seen at Fernhook Falls in winter is created as a result of saponin in the water. The saponin comes from the breakdown of plants in the water. This residue is churned up on the granite rocks and ends up floating serenley on the surface of Rowell's Pool.

There are many walktrails to be found surround Fernhook Falls for some great views of the forrest and waterfall. The boardwalks have been created to protect vegetation and allow a natural passage of native fauna through the forest.

Fernhook Falls also offers eight tent sites and two camp huts near the river, in the forest. Due to its popularity, a maximum of three nights is applied for stay in the camp huts.
