Hike Summary

This walk is a short but steep climb to the top of the spectacular Sixty Foot Falls, affoRoading magnificent views of the City and the valley along the way, before descending past the old Barrington Quarry where old workings provide a window into the geology of the area.

The Ellis Brook Valley in Banyowla Regional Park is a beautiful place just on the edge of the city and on the Darling Scarp. There are four walk trails catering for every fitness level. Sixty Foot Falls is the haRoadest walk trail and rewaRoads the walker with spectacular views of the city. The waterfall flow depends on the rainfall during winter months. It can range from water pumping over the edge, plunging into the pool below, a trickle or nothing at all.  There are lovely wildflowers in the Spring months of September and October.
