This trip we were keen to return and check out the reopened Purling Brook Falls Circuit complete with a new suspension bridge.

We arrived in the afternoon and quickly set up camp on our favourite site, number 6, so that we could do a quick recon of the falls before it got dark.

It is a pleasant 330m walk from the campground to the Purling Brook Falls Lookout. There is plenty to see even on this short walk.
