This short but steep-ish walk to Buddong Falls exceeded expectations, mainly because the falls were more spectacular than I’d expected them to be. I’d never heard of them until I scoured the internet looking for walks around Talbingo that we could fit into the late afternoon. It’s a longish drive on an unsealed road to get there, but there are quite nice views along the route which add to the experience. The upper falls are good but it’s the lower falls which make the big impression. They are 60m high but only the top half can be easily photographed.
There are directions to the start and track notes in this brochure of walks in northern Kosciuszko National Park: look for the Talbingo section. This track is a short section of the multi-day Hume and Hovell walking track, with a short side trip to view the lower falls.
