Billy Barquedier Waterfall

This magnificent waterfall cascades into a cool swimming hole located a 15-minute walk off the Hummingbird Hwy (signposted). A further one-hour walk brings you to a lovely viewpoint. If there are no volunteers there to take your entry fee, it may be risky leaving a vehicle unattended.
