Shiprock Falls in Gembrook

Shiprock Falls is one of those poorly signposted gems that you could quite easily drive past if you weren’t looking for it.

Unfortunately the pedestrian track leading down to the falls has been blocked by a strategically placed viewing platform. To get the best experience and the best shots here you need to climb around the outside of the platform and trek down the hill to the flowing water. Here you can immerse yourself in the total experience of the falls, ….the sounds, the smells, the chill of the water.

For the more adventurous you can climb the rocks and scattered trunks around the flowing water to reach the top where it appears that the water is coming out of a slot in the rocks. Great experience and a wonderful view of the surrounding bush from the top.

A special thanks to Di Jenkins for introducing me to this place.
