Summary: Shower Cave Falls is one of two spectacular waterfalls along the Split Rock Track in the Great Western Tiers.

The walk can be easily be done in 1-2 hours, although parts of the track are rough and steep. This waterfall is about 100m from the Split Rock Falls, which is on the same track.

It’s best to combine this track with the Meander Falls Track to do a longer loop walk (11.5km), which also visits the spectacular Meander Falls.
