Ellenborough Falls on the headwaters of the Ellenborough River, is located in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales, Australia in the Greater Taree area and is near Elands and Comboyne, on the Bulga Plateau.

At 200 metres, it is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere.

A timbered walkway (641 steps) to the bottom of the falls with rest spots on the way provides a comfortable 30 minute walk. There is also a 10 minute walk to The Knoll where there are magnificent views looking directly across to the falls

That's it folks!

Very nice set MA. It is hard to choose favourites from so many varied images, but shot 3 in post 1 really grabbed me\. Looks like a nice spot.

PS vignetting works well.

Superb! 641 steps, huh? Musta been a breeze cause it looks me like you stopped quite often to take a wonderful image. This is really great and pristine nature at its best.

Thanks Matt. :)
The reality was it was a long trek due to my wife's Rheumatoid Arthritis so I had lots of time to take photos.

What a great hike! That first shot still has me a bit dizzy, though.
