Length/duration: The easy-moderate grade track is approximately 3km return. Allow 1 to 2 hours. The track is a mixture of boardwalk, bush track and stone steps. 

Opening hours: You can access the walk 24/7, 365 days per year! For the best waterfall experience, visit after rainfall but good hiking shoes are a must!! The track can get very muddy. 

On lead/off-leash? On lead at all times. 

For the hounds: There are no poo-bag dispensers or disposal bins in Horseshoe Falls Reserve, so come prepared and carry your rubbish out of the reserve with you. No dog drinking fountains.

For the humans:
