The Hidden Jewels Of The Mountains || HAZELBROOK

Finding this waterfall was both a surprise and a relief. I walked through bush for a while, even had a mad slip down a mud slope, but this was the reward. After heavy rain, I feel that this probably would not normally flow very hard at all... Just like most of the mid mountains waterfalls. I would have to say I am happy with the hardship I went through to capture this awesome little scene.






The town was named after Hazelbrook House, built in the 1870s by Bronte Noelle. The name Hazelbrook was adopted in 1884 when the Hazelbrook railway station was opened opposite the home. Hazelbrook House no longer exists but Selwood House is a heritage-listed building in the nearby vicinity and now houses a science museum. Other attractions in the area include Terrace Falls, Victor Falls and Bedford Pool on the south side of the village, plus Lyre Bird Glen, Oaklands Falls, Horseshoe Falls and Burgess Falls on the north side.
