Strickland Falls is a 1.7km, grade 3 Return hike located in Strickland State Forest New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45 mins to complete.


This walk from the Banksia picnic area to the Strickland Falls includes a fantastic variety of forest scenery. The falls themselves are often just a trickle although the scenery in the area makes the walk well worthwhile. The cliff lines and boulders around the falls are interesting and there are pockets of rainforest in the shaded valleys dominated by cabbage palm trees.
