“Great Waterfall”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Definitely pay the Rainbow Falls a visit if you're travelling up North. Very easy access to the waterfall (less than 5 minutes to the first viewing point and about another 5-10 minutes to the basin). Went on a dreadful day but yet it still looked amazing. Parking should be easy as there are quite a number of lots. There are toilets. Very easy walk to the viewing points. Paths in great condition.

Just note that the signage to the rainbow falls carpark is not as obvious as most attractions. Just pay attention for the aptly named road, Rainbow Falls Road.

“Walk from Stone Store”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

It was a pleasant walk from the Stone Store along the creek up to the impressive Rainbow Falls. Worth the walk to just sit and what the waterfall and enjoy the environment.

“Wonderful Waterfall”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We did the long hike from Keri Keri and had an enjoyable time - it was all very easy going with a wonderful sight at the end. The rainbow effect is because of the spray in the air; it photographed will. There is a very close car park with only a few hundred metres to walk if you are not feeling energetic.

We walked to the falls from the Mission Station but there is also easy access by road to the dedicated car park.

“Lovely Falls”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Easy access and great photo op! Morning would be the best time as the sun was over the falls by evening...well worth the few minute drive from town!
