near Gibraltar, ACT (Australia)

Gibraltar Falls is a very popular tourist stop, partly because there isn't much walking! So you get a lot of visitors who arrive, park the car, walk to the falls and then drive off.

There is a slightly longer walk to Woods Reserve from Gibraltar Falls (1km), so you can make a longer round trip by starting at Woods Reserve and then walking to Gibraltar Falls and back (2.5km round trip). We started the walk to Woods Reserve and then the weather came over and we decided we didn't want to be trapped in a thunderstorm so turned arround.

The forest in this area is not as interesting as the forest on the Square Rock walk, however, if you are going to Square Rock then Gibraltar Falls is on the way and it is definitely worth stopping for a look.

Due to the number of visitors there are many, many signs warning you that you could fall off a cliff. Certainly while we were there there were lots of visitors ignoring the signs and walking all the way to the edge. Perhaps every now and again someone falls off...

There is a fully equiped (free) BBQ where you could cook something, also toilets at the car park.
