Norfolk Falls lookout

Coolah Tops National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Norfolk Falls lookout is located at the end of Norfolk Falls walk, in Coolah Tops National Park. It’s a great spot to view the cascading waterfall along Norfolk Island Creek, plunging 35m into a pool.

Starting from the carpark at Norfolk Falls picnic area, it’s a short but steep 20min stroll along Norfolk Falls walk to reach the top of the waterfall. The walk is around 1km return.

Some areas at the top of the falls are unfenced, so please take extreme care. Stay well back from cliff edges at all times and make sure you supervise children.

The best spot to soak up views and take photos is to head from the top of the falls to the nearby lookout platform, where it’s safe for the whole family to enjoy the natural beauty.
