A short walk from the Spring Hill picnic area through white cypress pine woodland will take you to Falcon Falls, where peregrine falcons come to nest from June to December. After rain, you may also be rewarded by cascades over the beautiful layered rock. Bring your binoculars because as well as the resident falcons, you’ll see a variety of woodland birds, including the eastern yellow robin, speckled warbler, white-browed babbler, yellow-rumped thornbill and striated pardalote.

Falcon Falls walking track is best taken from autumn through to spring, when you can enjoy pleasant walking conditions and the waterfalls are sometimes flowing.
