Sitting on the outskirts of St George Annandale Falls is an idyllic waterfall with a 9 metre (30ft) drop, surrounded by a grotto of lush vegetation. If you are feeling the heat after the short yet stunning garden walk, there is also a pool beneath the falls where you can take a refreshing swim. There are usually a few local adventure enthusiasts on hand taking donations in return for a great show where you will witness the daredevils jumping from the top of the cliffs.
