  • Coomba Falls is easy to get to (2km from Maidenwell) and the track to the Falls is really well constructed. Great to see so many young people enjoying themselves in the water on a summer day. An oasis...  more »
  • An awesome swimming hole, does get a little busy. But there's enough area to have a beautiful swim.
  • A classic swimming hole. Deliightful place surrounded by natural rock formations - be careful of the eels in the water when there is no one around They dont seem to bother you on weekends and holidays when there are lots of people swimming but if you throw a line in you will soon see what I mean. There are also dangerous areas on the steps down to the falls where there are no handrails and there is no telephone reception or emergency services so make sure that you never go there alone. My husband fell and kind people took him to the hospital - 3 broken ribs. We wrote to the council department that promotes the Falls but did not even receive acknowledgement. Still - its lovely and nice for a picnic.
