  A world of its own
by iandsmith

One of Australia's best known waterfalls, Ellenborough is situated on the high plateau and lush rolling hills around Elands, about an hour's drive from Port Macquarie.
These days there are some good facilities there. For instance, there is a kiosk, toilets, tables and chairs and a sealed carpark, the latter in contrast to the dirt road you will have to traverse to get there.
There is a 600 metre walk around to the opposite side where there is a lookout and a wooden stairway to the base of the falls.
These falls are one of scores that abound in the area. To find the others requires research or someone who knows the area.
You can see some of what I'm talking about in my Comboyne pages.

Directions: West of Port Macquarie, via Wauchope and Comboyne
