Cascades Walk
Where: Macquarie Pass National Park

Cascades Walk in Macquarie Pass National Park is simply beautiful. If you’re looking for a naturally stunning swimming hole complete with a waterfall in the warmer months, look no further than this walk! A short, flat bush track meanders along a creek for around an hour until you reach the stunning waterfall and pools. Kids will delight at the beauty of this walk, and they may also be lucky enough to spot a platypus or other wildlife along the way. You definitely want to pack a picnic and spend the day here. This is one of South Coast Kid’s favourite spots in the Illawarra! There is no entry fee for this track. (Note, we suggest you apply insect repellent and wear closed-in shoes on this walk as there are leeches that could frighten the kids. You should also arrive early as this is a very popular spot with limited parking).
