A mate of mine says Wollombi Falls near Cessnock are Australia's highest. I maintain it's Wallaman Falls near Ingham. Which of us is right?

The answer is probably NEITHER !|
Wallaman Falls, QLD
305 metres (numerous ledges)
West of Ingham, high in the Seaview Range, accumulated waters surge along Stony Creek to abruptly plunge more than 300 metres down a sheer cliff, creating Wallaman Falls, Australia's tallest waterfall.
Wollomombi Waterfall, NSW
220 metres (100m as single drop)
Wollomombi Falls, east of Armidale, includes a single drop of 100 metres. It is sometimes quoted as Australia's tallest waterfall, but this is only so if measured from its highest point, where the land has a much gentler gradient and the water does not truly 'fall'.
TIN MINE Fall on Tin Mine Creek in Kosciusko National Park, New South Wales, Australia is now regarded as the tallest at 360 metres (1182 feet)
