Robin Falls is a small reserve along Dorat Road and about 18 km from the township of Adelaide River. The falls cascade off sandstone escarpment which is bounded by floodplain to the east and the Adelaide River to the west. The area is predominantly private land. The falls are spring fed and water is present throughout the dry season and attracts macropods like the Agile Wallaby, Antilopine Wallaroo at the base and on the cliff-faces, the Short-eared Rock-wallaby, and the Narbalek (elegant rock-weasle).

Motor Car Falls follows an historic vehicle track where, in 1946, the first motorcar entered the region. An impassable creek marked the end of the journey. Ever since, that creek has been called Motorcar.
