Baxter Creek Falls - Southern Approach

From Flaxton Mill Road car park the walk leads through open eucalypt forest, past rocky outcrops and down hill to Baxter Creek with its beautiful waterfall. Follow signs to Mapleton Falls. Turn around at the Baxter Creek suspension bridge and return to your car along the same walking track. This walk requires a reasonable level of fitness as the uphill return walk is quite steep in places.

Baxter Falls - Northern Approach

This walk leads through open eucalypt forest, dropping almost 300m down to the suspension bridge across Baxter Creek and the Falls to your left. The water falls into a 'bowl', before cascading into the bottom of the creek. Access to the 'bowl' is thought to be by bush bash to the left, but was not tracked.

This walk can be accessed via Schultz road, in Witta, and appears to be a 4x4 telegraph track (frequently crossing through a power line area). It includes wet and dry Schlerophyll forests, and is Ideal in spring when it isn't too cold. Also, don't go after heavy rain, as creek crossings may be flooded.
