Coomera Gorge

It would be possible to devote an entire website to the waterfalls of Lamington National Park in Queensland. One of the more spectacular ones is Coomera Gorge, where Coomera Falls (on the left) and Yarrabilgong falls drop into the headwaters of the Coomera River. These falls (along with several others) can be accessed from the […]

Zambia 2003

I stayed with my friend, a retired school teacher, in Choma for 2 weeks. She had a nice two bedroom brick house. When one lives with a Zambian for two weeks, it is a good idea to give the hostess enough money to buy good food for both of us, as I couldn’t exist on […]

AKASA GANGAI WATERFALLS, Kolli Hills, Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu

It is eighteen miles(28 Kilometeres)long (north south) twelve miles(19 Kilometers) wide(east/west). Kolli Hills could be reached through a ghat road which was 70 hairpins bends.

Must have to go… (Waterfall Gully)

Well well….. I didn’t know there is a waterfall in Adelaide, but i was just trying to search for some adventures tracks in SA and i find it… It was awesome when I went to the Waterfall Gully for the first time with some of my friends from India and Sydney… It’s a beautiful place […]

Purlingbrook Falls

I just wanted to add a shot I took of Purlingbrook Falls after recent heavy rain. Also, “Purlingbrook” is actually one word in the name of the falls, and two words (Purling Brook) in the name of the stream. I’m not sure who came up with that idea. The falls do generally flow year-round, although […]

Twin Falls

There are many waterfalls at Springbrook National Park in Southern Queensland, but if I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Twin Falls, a 40 metre drop on the Eastern side of the escarpment. The two waterfalls then cascade further down the mountain, as can be seen to good effect from Canyon […]

Smoo Cave

A small, but elegant waterfall plunging into a cave just outside the village of Durness on Scotland’s north coast. The cave itself is actually the inside of a cliff which is entered from the beach, where the ocean washes up inside a gorge. The gorge and the seafront alone would be worth the visit, but […]

Lower Falls Rainbow

I wanted to share another picture–this time from above the falls.

Lower Falls in Rochester

This is one of my favorite waterfalls mostly because I can visit often. Sometimes I stop by on my lunch break. When the river is running high, there is considerable spray from the falls. In the winter this produces a localized ice storm. When there is sunshine, there are vivid rainbows. When the river is […]

Good experience, Decent Falls!!!

Eaton Canyon is pretty close to Los Angeles and is a great place to hike. It’s a very good falls with a good hike for about 1.5-2 miles ending at its base. The trail is pretty good and the small streams that you pass through while hiking leaves a pleasant feeling. A group of people […]

Great Sunday Hike

Went out to Manoa Falls after work yesterday for the first time since I moved to Oahu (3 years ago). This was a great beginner hike, and we completed the trail in about an hour and a half (including stopping and observing birds and plants and running water). It had been pouring rain all day […]

Sommersby Falls

As a local to the Gosford area, I have been to these falls a few times and seen them with different amounts of water flowing through them. Off the beaten track, you can actually get to the lower falls which has a lovely overhang where you can walk in behind them as my pic will […]

Kembe Falls

In deepest darkest Africa on the border between Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo lies a superb double waterfall. Next to the rustic village of Kembe with its mud-brick huts and thatched grass roofs, the falls of the same name roar for 24 hours per day breaking the peaceful silence of the […]

(Kitekite Falls) Bigger than most people think….

Hi Johnny Your website is great for waterfall addicts like myself. Just wanted to mention that the bottom 3 tiers of Kite Kite Falls are the most viewed but have attached a pic of the whole waterfall. There is another 30 metre drop above the triple section and then a series of shallow falls above […]

Escondido Falls- The Elusive Upper Falls

This hike is in Malibu and is on the website but the pictures don’t exactly show the REAL [Escondido Falls]. From the lower falls you start on a rough trail that requires some moderate climbing or scurrying up the path of steep rocks and dirt. It’s nothing to dangerous though, even borderline easy. Shortly you […]

Devil’s Cataract and Main Falls at Peak Flow

Having never got there when in lived in South Africa, my wife and I spent a few days at the Kingdom Hotel in early May 2007 on a visit to SA from Australia. The Zambezi was at peak flow and though our viewing was restricted to Devil’s Cataract and the Main Falls it was simply […]

Gigantic Waterfall Hole

Ahoy! On or about June 1975, on an afternoon helicopter ride with Jack Harter, out of the Kauai Surf Hotel, Na’wili’wili, we were flying west of Kapa’a and heading toward Wai’ale’ale, hoping to go over the ridge of the volcano to Waimea Canyon and on to the Na’Pali Coast area. We hit an incoming squall […]

Moon Walking & Rock Slides (San Antonio Falls)

We would climb up the falls along the crevice to the left of the falls all the way up then over to the chute to the left of the falls and run down the gravel chute. It was so steep it was like running on the moon. One step, then sink into the gravel, then […]

Waiale Falls – Hilo, Big Island – Garden of Eden

When I first saw this scene, it looked like what I would imagine the Garden of Eden would look like. I too, love waterfall pictures and have taken many pictures of them in the Hawaiian Islands, the western United States and Canada. Roger

Ken Foshaug (Målselvfossen)

My last name is derived from this area of Norway. Foshaug – Fos meaning waterfall and haug meaning hill. My Great-great-great grandfather moved from southern Norway to the Malselv valley in the early 1800’s and built a homestead on the hill northwest of the [Malselv waterfall] – hence the name derivation. I traveled to this […]
