From Potoroo Falls picnic area, follow Potoroo Falls walk around 1km upstream along Little Run Creek to the scenic waterfall and swimming hole.

At the start of the track, you’ll spot the largest recorded watergum in New South Wales, not to mention many species of rainforest trees and interesting plant life and wildlife along the way.

As the route follows the creek, it involves some rock-hopping, so be prepared for wet feet and a bit of splashing. Don’t forget to take your swimming gear for a dip at the beautiful swimming hole – it’s the perfect place for cooling down when the weather is hot.
