The Cudgewa Bluff Falls.

The Upper Murray region is blessed with natural beauty, epitomised by panoramic lookouts and beautiful waterfalls.

The Upper Murray has two readily accessible waterfalls, the Cudgewa Bluff Falls in the 
Burrowa Pine Mountain National Park  and  the Paddy's River Falls, 20 kilometres north of Tooma on the Tooma Road to Tumbarumba.

Both are perfect destinations for picnics or for just a bit of quiet contemplation time.

The Cudgewa Bluff Falls

The Cudgewa Bluff Falls is located in the
Burrowa Pine Mountain National Park,
18 km from Cudgewa and 18 km from Tintaldra.Spectacular Cudgewa Bluff Falls

The waterfall is located on the Bluff Falls Road, off the Cudgewa North Road, which links Walwa and the Cudgewa Valley through the National Park.

The Bluff Falls car park is located approximately 3 km from the Park Entrance and free camping area, and 250 m from the waterfall. 

Bluff Falls can be viewed from the top, at car park level and from its base, depending on how energetic and capable visitors may be.

If disability makes walking the extra 250 m to the waterfall from the car park too difficult, it is possible to obtain a key to the locked gate to gain closer access to the falls. The key can be obtained from the Corryong Visitor Information Centre. 

Paddy's River FallsPaddy's River Falls cascades of basalt blocks.

Eighteen kilometres north of Tooma, the Tooma Road crosses over Paddy's River. Paddy's River originates in the Bago State Forest, northeast of Tumbarumba and flows into the Tumbarumba Creek, a tributary of the Tooma River which eventually flows into the Murray River near the Upper Murray locality of Greg Greg.

Paddy's River is classified as a general trout stream, open to restricted bait fishing from the NSW Labour Day weekend in October until the Queen's Birthday weekend in June.

Beside the river crossing is the beautiful Paddy's River free camping area with its covered picnic tables, barbeque and toilet facilities.

Two kilometres north of the Paddy's River crossing and camping area on the Tooma Road, a signpost marks the entrance to the two kilometre unsealed road which winds its way through native bush land to the Paddy's River Falls car park.

Paddy's River Falls is a short 2 km drive off the Tooma Road, 20 km from Tooma.

An easy one minute stroll from the car park will take visitors to a lookout area, where the river and falls can be seen.

A stepped walk way leads down to the base of the falls. At an easy pace, the descent takes less than five minutes.Back to Top

The car park area, above the falls, has tables, barbeques and toilet facilities.
