Tolmer Falls were the last Falls we visited on our tour of Litchfield National Park. As we arrived our driver and host told us there was a gentle walk down to the lookout to the Falls. As it was quite warm and humid we were glad. But we soon discovered our idea of gentle was nothing like the driver’s idea. It was quite steep in parts. Walking down was ok but we weren’t looking forward to walking back up. It was more strenuous given that most of us were tired.
We couldn’t get to the base of the Falls, only to a lookout that was hundreds of metres above the base. It gave us the chance to take in the beauty of the cliffs and surrounding area. When I turned away from the Falls I saw a magnificent view over the treetops to the horizon.
