Fernhook Falls is an attractive bush camping and picnic spot on Deep River.
The mood of the Deep River at Fernhook Falls depends on the season. In winter, the water gushes furiously over the granite boulders creating a whitewash of froth. In summer, the flow is reduced to a trickle and Rowell’s Pool is a calm, tranquil place.
Wheelchair-accessible walk trails and boardwalks have been designed to give you a great view of the cascading falls and pristine forest. The boardwalks have been constructed to protect the vegetation around the pool while still allowing the natural passage of native fauna through the forest.
Follow the path that runs along the Deep River and explore the falls and surrounding forest
