Beauchamp Falls is a spectacular 20 metre high waterfall which is reached via a short walk through very beautiful forest with mountain ash, large myrtle beech, and blackwood. The walk is downhill most of the way to the falls, and is worth taking your time to enjoy the surrounds. The falls are viewable from a platform. Then retrace your steps back uphill to the carpark.
