Not named on maps, Douglas River Falls is the unofficial name for a very pretty cascading waterfall about 4 metres high, 150 metres downstream of Tevelein Falls. While it is smaller then its named neighbour, it is arguably more photogenic, situated in a nice rocky gorge at a big bend in the Douglas River with a green pool at the base very characteristic of many of the falls in the area. 

See the Tevelein Falls for more information on access, however getting here requires a hike of at least two days, through often rough terrain.
