    Thanks for that.

    I am keen for any morning on a weekend. Since it mainly revolves around you leading the way is there a time that suits you?

    I would not recommend people going in the dark for the first trip.
    If we can organise a date and time I would only be too willing to go back.

    Sounds like you had a good time Steve.. I live in Wollongong & am yet to find the waterfalls out further as I want to shoot around there

    I am OK early Saturday or Sunday. We just need a time and a place to meet up.
    all the best,
    Steve.
    By the way I live in Barrack Heights

    Hi Warren the only waterfalls that I know are Minnamurra and Macquarie falls, there are a few that are on private property but I don't know where abouts they are.
    All the best,
    Steve.

    There are a number of falls in the vacinity

    Try these two sites
    http://www.world-of-waterfalls.com/a...uth-wales.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_of_Australia

    Scroll down on the first on to the Google map and zoom in on the area. It will give you a better idea of the ones nearby.
    Minimurra Falls
    Carrington Falls
    Belmore Falls
    Fitzroy Falls
    Twin Falls
    And there is also the falls in Macquarie Pass NP at the bottom of the Macquarie Pass.

    Hi all. Yes this is for Bombo headland, is everybody familiar the rest area on the Kiama bypass south, of the Riverside drive turn off? If that is ok with everyone we could meet there at whatever time is best for you.
    all the best.
    Steve.

    Is thats the one just south of the turn off - before you climb up the hill?

    Whats the best time for shooting there - early morning or late in the day?

    I am happy with any time you make - Sunday is open for me for both morning and afternoon.
