Summary: Tianjara Falls along Braidwood Road (between Canberra and the coast) is spectactular after heavy rain, and can stop flowing in dry periods.

I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to see this waterfall… but it makes a nice stop if you’re taking Braidwood Road between Canberra and the coast (Main Road 92). A fenced viewing platform at the top of the cliff provides a view of the waterfall, and Morton National Park and the Ettrema Wilderness.

Tianjara Falls

Tianjara Falls is more spectacular after heavy rain; I visited a few days after there had been significant rainfall, and the water flow had already decreased significantly – the falls can dry up during periods of no rain.

Getting to Tianjara Falls

Tianjara Falls is about 40kms out of Nowra along Braidwood Road, with a signposted access road leading to a large parking area. A very short paved and wheelchair-accessible trail leads to the fenced lookout. There are no marked trails down to the pools below the waterfall.
