GIBRALTER FALLS - VIDEO
Gibraltar Falls is one of the largest and most accessible waterfalls in the Australian Capital Territory. From the top to the bottom of the falls the Gibraltar Creek cascades 50 metres before entering a narrow 800 metre granite-walled gorge. The headwaters of Gibraltar Creek originate at 1,320 metres above sea level, which is well above the snow-line, before descending to 720 metres on the valley floor below the falls.
This video from Adam Spence photography shows the Gibralter Falls near Canberra beautifully.

For more information on the falls I have a post here.
