A short drive south from Arthur River is Nelson Bay River Falls, a small but very pretty cascade that flows on Nelson Bay River. Situated right next to the bridge that crosses Nelson Bay River, some unofficial parking areas are established, south of the bridge. The walk will take you a couple of minutes to see the picturesque cascade.

Other waterfalls nearby include Elver Falls that can relatively easily be accessed by kayak.
