Route/Trail notes

 This track begins at the Jerusalem Creek day use area and ends at another car park on the road in.  Either use two cars, or return via the same track.  The day use area is upstream from the car park at the other end, and there are quite a few steps and steep sections.  There is a lookout over a waterfall 2 minutes in from the day use area end.  On the other end, you cross 4 bridges over gullies.

Comments

The whole region had been in drought, there was not a drop of water to be seen at the Falls themselves or in the gully. It was a hot day, but the tree canopy provided good shade on the trail. I parked at the 'top' carpark which is only a few hundred metres from the Falls, then walked the track down to the first (downhill) carpark. Lots of ups and downs, imagine it would be slippery in the wet. I opted to use the fire trail to walk back to my car as I thought it would be less strenuous- not a very pretty end to the walk though and had to contend with 4wders driving too fast near me, I should have just returned via the same trail.

We began at the car park down the road and took the track to the top. It is quite steep in parts and strenuous. We spotted a lyrebird in one of the gullies. The waterfall was pretty much dry. The trip back down was a bit slippery as the surface on the track is rather loose.
