Visit The Disa River Waterfall

Within the surrounds of the Harold Porter National Botanical Gardens is the Disa River trail. This visually appealing trail leads you to the Disa River Waterfall, a magnificent and quite special feature.

The popular attraction sits below the waterfall in a 16 metre deep pool. The crystal clear waters transform from clear to a fully black mass of water. The waters turn dark from only 2 metres below its surface and result in zero visibility, giving this pool of water its eerie and bizarre feel.

The trail, situated along the western part of the garden, runs along the Disa River (named after the flowering Disa Orchids), and is easy to walk, allowing for wheel chairs and prams. A short 30minutes (950m) brings you to the waterfall which can be accessed via a z shaped bridge, originally built in the 1950’s -the bridge was built to better access material being used to build the dam above the waterfall.

Apart from the waterfall the trail takes you over the Olive May Porter Bridge, where you can enter a wooded area best fit to spot a variety of bird species.
