Summary: A spectacular waterfall in the NSW Southern Highlands, Belmore Falls can be seen from a few vantage points on the opposite side of the valley. Access to the bottom of the first tier is possible, but the walking track is officially closed.

Multiple lookouts from a walking track (approx 1km return) along the top of the cliff provide a view of Belmore Falls across the valley, with one of them offering expansive views over Kangaroo Valley (Hindmarsh Lookout). The falls were named after Somerset Lowry-Corry (Lord Belmore) who was Governor of New South Wales from 1868 to 1872.

Belmore Falls

Barrengarry Creek plunges about 100m over three tiers, although only the two uppermost tiers are visible from the various lookouts.

Belmore Falls

It’s possible to get to the bottom of the falls (or to be be precise, the bottom of the first tier) via a rough walking track, but the track is technically closed and there is a risk of a fine.

Getting to Belmore Falls

Belmore Falls is located about 10km south of the town of Robertson in the Southern Tablelands, via Belmore Falls Road (the last few kilometres are unsealed but fine for 2WD vehicles). You can also access the waterfall lookouts from the north, but the road crosses a ford over Barengarry Creek and may be impassable after heavy rain. The walking track starts from a small carpark, and unless you want to visit all the lookouts (which offer similar views from slightly different angles) it’s a very short walk from the carpark to see the waterfall.
