Hardings Falls is a picturesque, multi-tiered cascade waterfall situated on Swan River, approximately 10 km from the township of Royal George, and some 35 – 40 km from Avoca.
Take the C301 road from Cranbrook until you reach the turnoff to the Hardings Falls Forest Reserve. A short walk from the picnic area leads through the eucalypt forest to the lookout at the top of the falls. The 20-minute walk down to the river is steep, so walking shoes are essential, but you’ll be rewarded with a great view of the falls and space to enjoy a picnic lunch on the rock platforms that line the river.
Steep access, unsealed road, – 4wd / AWD recommended.
