The Granite Falls are to be found in the mountainous Morton National Park situated to the south west of Nowra. The falls, unfortunately quite dry on this visit, can be viewed from an observation platform placed at the end of a short walk from the car park. The track passes a number of abandoned tin mines and old timber milling sites.
