Belmore Falls is a 130m plunge waterfall in the Southern Highlands of NSW. It had been on my list as a location to visit and photograph for quite some time. I eventually got my chance to visit on the 5th of July, where the forecast for rain meant that the waterfall would be in full flow. After a very early start and a long drive we arrived at the carpark and elected to take the 2km return hike down to the base of the falls.
The track was not maintained and there are a few sections where dead trees have fallen across the path. Once we reached the bottom I was blown away by the sheer power of the water plummeting over the cliff. The location is now etched in my memory as one of the most spectacular waterfalls I’ve ever visited. It makes me realise there are many gems in NSW to visit and explore.
Here are a selection of images from my visit which should help to show why the place left such an impression on me.
