Time Out says

It’s an adventurous drive to reach Belmore Falls in Wildes Meadow. It’s a 20-30 minute drive from Carrington Falls, so it’s possible to visit both in one day. You’ll drive up a dusty, gravel road up to the lookout, eventually reaching a creek that you need to drive over to access the car park. If it’s too wet to cross, you’ll need to turn back (so check the weather before you go). The falls are located in Morton National Park, and there is limited parking, toilets and a small picnic table at the top of the falls. There’s a very short walk between Hindmarsh Lookout, which gives you a photo opportunity of the dramatic Southern Highlands landscape below, and the sandy, eucalypt path to the Belmore Falls lookout. It’s an easy walk – a little too easy. Which is why visitors are so intrigued to see people swimming and sunbathing at the midpoint of the waterfall, at Barrengarry Creek. But how to get there is a mystery! Apparently, it is possible to follow a fire trail – which is not part of the official track and not signposted – down to the pool. There are, however, warning signs about venturing off track and the drop is very dangerous.
