Hidden within Punchbowl Reserve, a seasonal waterfall unofficially named Punchbowl Falls flows along the Kings Meadows Rivulet, plummeting approximately 4 - 5 metres betwen a natural Rock fissure. Punchbowl Falls is not signed on any of the tracks. However, from the main carpark, if you walk towards the overflow carpark, you will see a sign that points you in the direction of a 'Natural Rock Fissure'. The track walks you to a viewing bridge of the Stunning Rock Fissure, and it's through this fissure Punchbowl Falls flows.

Due to Punchbowl Falls flowing on Kings Meadows Rivulet, the waterfall is very seasonal, and often dries up in drier months. It's best viewed after rainfall.
