Walking and driving instructions


Gills Gully Falls is roughly a 1hour' drive away from Sydney CBD. From the city center head south on the M1 then on the A1. Roughly after 52km, slide left onto Lawrence Hargrave Dr and follow it for the next 2km, then turn left (signposted) onto Kelly's Falls Picnic Area. There is a big car park at the end of this un-sealed(300m) road.

The parking has picnic tables and information(map) boards, but no toilets.

From the car park follow the stairs which bring you to the top of the upper Kelly's Falls cascade (1-2 minutes), then cross the creek and walk along the Princess Marina Track for roughly 10-15 minutes until you reach the top of the Gills Gully Falls. The bottom of the waterfall, as well as the swimming hole, are accessible via an unofficial track and don't look safe. Take extra care if you decide to descend to the falls' base.

Return via the same route. Total walking time is about 30-40min (excluding descend to the falls' bottom).

Gills Gully Falls is a permanent waterfall. Best time to visit - after a decent rain.
