    I love this place. If you are a nature lover this is a highly recommended place. I have been there twice and they were two different experiences. In summer, less water and dry air but still beautiful. With the blue sky it creates an amazing view. Other days it's wet and cool. Different species of insects and birds can be visible. Rock pools are amazing and you would spend whole day in water. Some entering places have limited parking spaces, so I would recommend to go early.

    There are two hiking trails, one is around 2 hours for return and another one is about four hours. We chose the two hours one, and we can see different angles of this Purling Brook Fall while walking. We’re so lucky that there were raining few days ago, so we can enjoy magnificent waterfall today. Highly recommend this natural national park to families or friends who want to have a lovely and chill holidays.

    Absolutely stunning with the renewed waterfalls! First time I've hiked Warrie Circuit with water flowing so much that I had to wade barefoot twice through the creeks. Be careful when crossing rocks around waterfalls and through creeks. The flowing water has power! Unforgettable.

    Love this place. Amazing scenery, good amenities at the entrances, plenty of information signs around the walks and the track surfaces are well maintained. Purling Brook Falls and Twin Falls are awesome, but also make the little bit of effort to walk in to Black Fellow Falls, particularly if there has been recent rains. Probably the only downside is the lack of parking near some of the walk entry points. The locals must love the traffic jamming up their streets on weekends. Spend plenty of money at the stalls and shops and they'll surely forgive you. Go early and enjoy the cool morning air and you'll find it easier to get a park. Weekdays are quieter if you have that option. Watch out for the motorcycles on the road in and out. Guys, c'mon, it's a public road and you don't bounce so good.

    It's got a waterfall, it's lush, it's surrounded by green, what's not to love.
