Bridal Veil Falls is the other of two lovely waterfalls near the Lemonthyme Lodge Wilderness Retreat not far from the Cradle Valley section of Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park.
The falls tumbles some 15-20m in an open area of Bulls Creek. We happened to see the falls in low flow (see photo above) where the falls had split into strands draping its underlying rock wall. I'm sure when the creek flows well, the falls looks like an impressive rectangular curtain of water. We combined this waterfall with Champagne Falls making for an excellent half day walk in the bush.
The day use car park is in the Lemonthyme Lodge complex. The first part of the walk is the same as that of Champagne Falls so we won't reproduce that description here.
From the signed fork, we had a choice of continuing on the 4wd track or taking the steep primitive track to Champagne Falls where along the way down, there is a spur track leading through the shaded forest along Bulls Creek towards the Bridal Veil Falls. Either way, the tracks connect in front of the falls via a log bridge.
Like Bridal Veil Falls, it would probably take 2 hours return to do an out-and-back hike just for this falls. Since it's about 3 hours to do the whole loop taking in both falls, we opted to do that instead.
