Taken on 13 September 2009, after average winter rains. Although it was a pleasant day, there were showers overnight.
We were in the Park with the Nature Conservation Society for SA leading 'Walks with Nature'. We were leading some long walksm but as only a few walkers turned up, we were free to go for a walk by ourselves with the camera.
This little video and photos were taken on on a compact still camera. It requires Quicktime to view.
First Falls is about 23 metres high, and has developed where faulting has caused the softer Saddleworth Formation to be adjacent to the Undalya Quartzite, which is highly resistant to erosion.
Once the falls developed over the faulted zone, erosion in the pool at the base has resulted in the exposure of quartzite.
