Winnifred Falls are located approximately 40km South East of Sydney's CBD, in the heart of the Royal National park.
To get to the Falls, head to Warumbul Road which is just off of Sir Burtram Stevens Drive. The Falls can be found a the bottom of the Winnifred Falls Fire Trail which begins a couple of hundred metres down Warumbul Road on the right hand side. Depending on the weather, parking is usually pretty easy and is best either side of the road in one of the clear ditches.
The walk to the falls is approximately 1 km and took us around 1 hour in total, not including our swim. The track starts out quite flat before beginning the gradual decent down to the falls. There is one point that is quite steep but certainly manageable for all age groups. Once at the bottom, you will hear the sound of the falls to your left. There are a number of different options for climbing down to the falls area.
The falls are a great place for a swim and are a nice alternative Wattamolla, which is usually pretty busy. Whilst there is a number of spots to jump from, make sure you check the depth first as rainfall and seasons can greatly affect the depth of the water. I would definitely not recommend jumping from the actual waterfall itself as the rocks are very slippery and there were a number of submerged rocks and branches directly below the falls.
