Off trail to Swanson Falls on Brindle Creek. This waterfall appears to have once been along the Brindle Creek walking trail though the trail to the falls is mostly lost to the rainforest. A combination of using the old trail and bush bashing can be used or by wading / rock hopping up the creek itself. Bring a dry bag to make your life easier.

A detailed description of the walk!

Navigation is easy as you just follow the creek. Though the walk is short the going is slow through rainforest terrain or through the creek itself. Only 500 meters each way though depending on your pace and on the current water levels and how choked up the creek is the time taken to get to the falls can be around 40 minutes.


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?

Border Ranges Park Fees Apply.

The old trail is overgrown and in the end found it easier to wade through Brindle Creek. Got caught in a downpour on the way back.
