I visited Steavensons Falls on a recent photography excursion to the Marysville area in Jan 2011. Last time I was up this way the falls were closed to the public due to fire damage and the inherent dangers. Now they’re open, but lack some of the ferny green grandeur that they once had.
I had visited the area in 2003 only to find the river was almost dry. Yesterday, 16 Jan 2011, there was plenty of water flowing through the cascades and over the falls.
Hello there, Have been admiring your site and the huge amount of waterfalls you and your wife have managed to tick off around the globe – very impressive, well done guys. My wife (Karen) and I enjoy getting our feet wet too and enjoyed many happy times in Yosemite a couple of years back. Last […]

After a short hike, I reached Sol Duc Falls in the heart of the Olympic National Park. It was the second week in July, and the weather was nice and sunny. Had it not been sunny, my picture would have been quite different. As it is, it has lots of highlights where the sun shown […]
There is a place southwest of Sydney called Southern Highlands. In Southern Highlands there is a famous waterfall called Fitzroy Falls. Fitzroy Falls is 81 metres high. It is surrounded by a valley. The falls fall onto some rocks and form a river that flows into the valley. You can view the falls from many […]
Went there with my teenagers and their friends recently. Amazing place. The lower falls pool is really deep. One of the boys jumped from the top, it was amazing. Recommend a visit
The Iroquois name for the Rochester area is Cas-con-sha-gon, meaning river with falls upon it.” The Genesee River has three waterfalls in Rochester as the river plunges over the Niagara escarpment. (There are four waterfalls if you count the Court Street dam.) Several more waterfalls were formed when streams entered the river gorge. There are […]

In March 2004 we were going from Wanaka towards Haast and stopped to visit the Blue Pools which were more of a muddy green at that time of the year. I was impressed by the number of small cairns built by previous visitors on a shingle bank in the river bed. As we climbed the […]

Driving distance from Whangarei about 34kms on sealed roads. Walking distance minimal. Lookout at car park. These falls are to the west of Whangerei, North Island.

Hi, my name is Phil and I just wanted to share a photo of Cedar Creek Falls in full flow. Had you been there a few months earlier you would have seen it too. We had been staying in Proserpine for about 9 months. I lived full time traveling with my family in a motor […]
Thank you Johnny & Julie for such a beautiful website!! Here are some pics of the waterfall as it was on 21 November 2010. My partner and I visited these falls on Sunday 21 November 2010 (last weekend), and they were magnificent. The writer is correct that the drought had an impact in the photos […]
A couple of friends and I stopped off at Sailor Falls on the way home from a photo excursion in the Bendigo area in August 2010. Recent rains meant the falls flowed nicely. Although it was too hazy and sunny to get decent shots, I did snap this one.
Strath Falls was severely burnt during the 2009 fires in Victoria. Almost 2 years on, and after a year of almost record rain, the falls are recovering well.
I visited Iguazu Falls the first time back in 1978. I stayed in a hostel that was just outside the park where international travelers stayed – no electricity and no plumbing in the rooms. The falls were so fantastic that I went back another three times, staying at the same hostel. The natural beauty is […]
