From the picnic area, follow Potaroo Falls walk approximately 1km upstream along Little Run Creek to the tranquil, scenic waterfall and swimming hole.
At the start of the track, you'll spot the largest recorded watergum in New South Wales, not to mention many species of rainforest trees and interesting plant life and wildlife along the way.
As the route follows the creek, it involves some rock-hopping, so be prepared for wet feet and a bit of splashing. Don't forget to take your swimming gear for a dip at the beautiful swimming hole - it's the perfect place for cooling down when the weather is hot.
About the region
A few hours drive north of Sydney, Tapin Tops National Park lies on a spectacular section of the Great Eastern Escarpment, high up in the mountains just northwest of Wingham. Scenic lookouts such as Rowleys Rock lookout provide astounding panoramic views out across Taree and the ocean beyond. Wander through the park’s subtropical rainforest and old growth eucalypt trees with its richly diverse plant and animal habitat, which dingoes and other interesting native species call home.
Mountain Brush circuit offers an easy, yet rewarding, stroll through the rainforest. Potoroo Falls walk is a fun, easy walk that involves a bit of rock jumping along a creek down to the falls and their swimming waterhole. If you’re in the mood for something a little more strenuous, hike up to the top of Rowleys Rock for incredible mountain views. Dingo Tops campground is the perfect place to base yourself if you're exploring the park for more than a day-trip.
