With a sense of trepidation I set out to cycle past all the major waterfalls in the Southern Highlands. I didn’t expect to be amongst the crowds the whole day. In particular, I had read Belmore Falls was more remote and quiet due to the dirt roads, and the closed walking path to the base was only ventured by intrepid walkers.
Well, looking over Belmore Falls from the top, drone buzzing overhead, I noticed that not only at the top, but at the base there were swarms of instragrammers (OK, like me). I ticked off all of the waterfalls, but was never alone, and couldn’t reach any serenity.
The dirt track to Gerrigong Falls was the most beautiful, passing through some highlands open terrain to the edge of the waterfall.
