Hell Hole Falls

Mount Jerusalem National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Hell Hole Falls is in Mount Jerusalem National Park near Mullumbimby. Visiting this waterfall is not recommended, as there is a risk of falling and severe injury.

Hell Hole Falls has never been a designated visitor site due to the risk of falling from the cliff edge. There is no approved walking track leading to the falls and access for emergency services is difficult. If you're keen for a swim and a waterfall lookout, try nearby Minyon Falls instead.

Always be careful around waterfalls as the rocks and paths can be extremely slippery. Never jump into waterfalls from heights and be sure to follow waterfall safety advice.

There's limited mobile phone reception in this area.
