Mena Creek Falls

Just happen to get to Mena creek falls near Innisfail, Queensland just after some heavy rains. It is quite a sight to see.

The Fitzroy experience

Fitzroy is indeed worth a look, it’s almost up there with Ellenborough Falls. The walk along the western rim is a lovely walk and, as suggested, it has some wonderful views and you cross over another waterfall and then reach The Grotto, a small but beautiful cascade that drops into a glade. I thought I’d […]

Dangars Falls – Great When Wet

I’ve been to Dangars Falls many times but I’ve never seen it totally dry. Once I was there just after a peak flood and it was spectacular. Sadly, my pictures are on some old film. However, I often used to drop it during my time as a rep and, on this occasion, there was quite […]

The AGONY And The ECSTACY (Mathinna Falls)

It bode ill. “I can’t remember the last time it rained,” the man in Devonport had said. And there I was looking forward to photographing waterfalls. Things change though; by the time I reached St. Helens two days later I listened to the news and they said Mathinna had had 52 mm. Fate had dealt […]

Morialta Falls

The walk from the car park to the base of the falls takes around 15 to 20 minutes, has a slight gradient all the way, and is very enjoyable in all seasons. There is a boardwalk and platform at the falls. It is also wheelchair accessible and the paths are smooth all the way with […]

Cooling Off (Millaa Millaa Falls)

We arrived at Millaa Millaa Falls on a hot and humid afternoon feeling pretty frazzled. However, one look at the inviting water and we were in. After getting over the initial shock at how cold the water was, we played happily for some time before emerging with our core temperatures somewhere closer to normal and […]

Frequent Guest (Angel Falls)

Although I have never been to Angel Falls I do have a connection to them. My father and our family lived in British Guiana during the 40’s and 50’s. My dad was a government negotiator for part of that time and we lived on Atkinson Field, a former American air base. It was during that […]

Virginia Falls

One of the most impressive falls we have seen is not on your list. It is the Virginia Falls in the Nahanni National Park in the North West Territories, Canada. It is located 230 km west of Fort Simpson accessible by air. We flew in a twin otter float plane and landed above the falls. […]

Kalambo Falls

I first visited Kalambo Falls in 1956 when I was working as a Government Medical Officer in the nearby town of Abercorn in the Northern Province of Northern Rhodesia, as Zambia was called then. During several subsequent visits at that time I never ceased to be amazed by the sheer beauty and wonder of it […]

Memorable Angel Falls

Back in 1994 I took a flight out of Barcelona (Puerto La Cruz) Venezuela to Canaima. It was a 3 or 4 hour flight (one way) in an old DC3 aircraft. After landing at Canaima we were taken on a 3 hour long trip through the surrounding area ending up having lunch near the falls […]

“About the Falls” – Correction

All 3 components of the falls are quite beautiful, but the Horseshoe Falls are, in fact, Canadian. Here is some dry, but interesting history: The International Boundary line was established by the Paris Peace Treaty of 1783 and later in the Jay’s Treaty of 1794. The was also agreed to at the Treaty of Ghent […]

Favourite Day Trip

I lived in southern Ontario for the first 45 years of my life and visited the falls many, many times. It was always a favourite day trip. It’s fun to go in the summer and get wet as you approach them on a windy day. Just the sound of the water itself is pretty amazing.

Yarrabilgong Falls

Perhaps better known as the “other” waterfall in the Coomera Gorge in Lamington National Park, this 150 metre drop is spectacular in it’s own right.

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 […]

Taveuni’s Ravilevu Coastline

I’ve been visiting Taveuni’s Ravilevu coastline since 1983 and it is truly the land of waterfalls – and I’ve jumped a few in my 64 years of adventure. John “Caveman” Gray

Stupid Stunt

In 1982 when I was young and stupid I sat in the falls and hung my feet over the edge. It was a rush and an awesome sight but not too smart.

Accident and the Bride’s Veil

In the Fifties, a French couple in Honeymoon drove into the waterfall from the old road (along the tunnel). According to the story the flowers were found floating in the water, giving the name “Brudesløret” to the waterfall (The Bride’s Veil). Both died.

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 […]
