Trevathan Falls is a little off the beaten track. There are no signs from the main highway to get here. Access is ok in a 2WD but you may have to walk the last few hundred meters of the track if you don't have high clearance.
There is a superb swimming hole at the base of Trevathan Falls. The falls are picture perfect and the swimming hole is large and deep with water pure enough that you can drink without treating. (Please treat your water though - we don't want you getting sick!)
