About Branigan Cascades

One of 6 blue lines on the map in Cradle Mountain's Waterfall Valley, unofficially-named Branigan Cascades consist of a small cascading waterfall dropping about 5 metres into a nice pool. They are exceedingly difficult to photograph, with the best view probably being from the middle of the pool itself, but are still a nice bonus to the other more impressive falls of the valley. 

To see Branigan Cascades, continue along a flat shelf of rock downstream of Lower Branigan Falls towards Hartnett Rivulet Falls, until a partial view of the cascades can be seen by looking down from the shelf. With a bit of scrambling it is easy enough to get to the top of them which may present the most practical point for photography, though most hikers probably won't see much value in sticking around for long en route to the bigger and better waterfalls further down.
