Lovely views from lookout to falls and river below. Pleasant shady park with tables and walking tracks. Well maintained public spaces. Would be a lovely spot to swim in summer, and BYO picnic.

Definitely worth a trip to Nigretta Falls if you're in the area! It had rained fairly recently so the falls were very impressive, but am sure they would be beautiful any time of year! Numerous spots to view the falls from and great spot for...More

Easy access from highway, and falls (not as big as they could be due to lack of rain) were running and we walked down to the falls for a closer look. Had a picnic lunch and shared some time in the park with some bird...More

Thanks for your review @RoadTripTrish. Glad to hear you enjoyed your recent visit. We agree both Wannon and Nigreatta Falls are a great place for a picnic and an opportunity to break the journey.

Well worth a visit. Has several viewing areas and the fit can use the stairs to climb down to the river. Best time viewing is winter/spring to see some spectacular cascading water. Link your visit with a short trip to view the Wannon Falls.
