Route/Trail notes

 Go down the Kondilla Falls track to Skene Creek where it is crossed by a Bridge. Start rock hopping down the creek. Ignore any funny looks from other day walkers! Rock hop down finding the occasional foot pad till you reach a fence on the left climb through the fence and follow a footpad to a large rock where Obi Obi Creek joins Skene or vice versa. Keep going downhill on Obi Pbi Creek, there is some scrubby parts. until you reach the Gorge be careful not to follow a smaller tributary creek off Obi Obi, it is on the left.  You will come to the Gorge and this is where you start swimming. I took a surf mat to float htrough but forgot a large plastic bag for my daypack! The gorge is about 250m long. Keep following the Crek till you reach a swiming hole and then a bend in the Creek, The track to the Baroon Pocket Dam carpark is found here.

Comments

Commenced in dark from Baroon Dam section. Obi Obi Creek flowing nicely after all that rain, YET made for quite slippery rocks !!!
Nice walk tho to the falls and back in cooler months or do one way with a pick up at the other end.....unless your doing part of the SSC Great Walk.

Walked from Kondalilla to Obi Obi creek and back again. Beautiful waterfalls as the rain had provided alot of water!
No difficult parts just a long way; 21 kms clocked on Endomondo.
Was pretty tired and worn out but most enjoyable!
Training for Kilimanjaro

A long walk but easy to cool off in during summer. Would not do this after rain!
