Nethercote Falls, Pambula, NSW

Nethercote Falls is a waterfall with a large swimming hole in the Nethercote Flora Reserve. The falls have carved their way through the bedrock and forged an canyon with sheer cliffs surrounding the water hole. There are jumping locations here, but make sure to check the depth. The downstream end of the swimming hole is quite shallow while the falls end is very deep.
