Turpins Falls drops down over a gorgeous, huge semi-circular wall of rock into a large pool of water below. 

This is an impressive, peaceful location where you can swim beneath a waterfall! 

Take a picnic lunch for a relaxing day out while enjoying picturesque views of the waterfall across the tranquil little lake.

There is a large parking area from which a walking track begins its steep (but fairly short) descent down into a gorge to the waterfall below. 

When you reach the bottom of the walk, you will be looking out over an area filled with large stones, boulders and huge natural structures of tree roots and fallen logs. 

Beyond this lies the beautiful lake surrounded by gorgeous cliffs. The impressive waterfall drops over the cliff across the lake from the rocky area, and a creek winds off to the left.

The boulders and logs make excellent natural seats as well as provide endless fun for children to climb and explore along the water's edge. There is also a great tree that is fantastic for kids to climb.
