About Maitland Falls
Falls Reserve is a series of very low, wide steps across the Maitland River. Each step is no more than about a meter high, but up to 100 m wide. It's picturesque and the trails through the conservation area are worth the price of admission. In late summer, the river is at very low stage and the exposed bedrock bed can be explored for several hundred metres. While swimming and wading is popular, I highly recommend against it.
