About Fitzroy Falls

Discover the beauty and grandeur of the Fitzroy Falls, a waterfall that drops more than 80 metres in the Morton National Park. Getting to this spectacular attraction in the beautiful Southern Highlands is easy: the falls are two hours’ drive from Sydney or Canberra and 60 minutes from Wollongong.

You’ll find plenty of parking at the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre, which has a cafe, souvenir shop and information on local Aboriginal history and wildlife in the park. A short wheelchair-accessible boardwalk links the visitor centre to the falls, where views of the natural wonders are breathtaking.
