About Upper Holley Falls

Upstream from Holley Falls is a second impressive waterfall, and one of extremely different character to its named counterpart further down. The unnoficially named Upper Holley Falls plunge 8 metres over a wide overhanging cliff with a large pool below, and are well worth the extra effort required from the lower waterfall. 

To access Upper Holley Falls, at the point where you head down the gully to Holley Falls, instead of descending into the gully continue to round the hillside until you are roughly level with the line of the falls, then work your way down to their base. A bit of wading into the creek is required to get the best angle to shoot from, but on a warm day this is quite refershing, and the falls would make for an excellent summer swimming spot given the permanent flow of Holley Creek. 

If making the effort to reach Upper Holley Falls it is highly recommended to visit the main Holley Falls as well, and if doing the hike to both falls at least four hours should be allowed.
