Approximate time is one hour from the Waterfall Reserve picnic ground, or one and a half hours from the Study Centre. This walk is a must for visitors to Mount Wilson. It is steep with some steps.


Start in the Waterfall Reserve opposite Chimney Cottage. With your back to Chimney Cottage veer to the left across the picnic ground and you will soon pick up the track. A delightful rainforest walk down to the Waterfall Creek. A little steep but well worth it. This is a true rainforest: sassafras, giant coachwood, corkwood, treeferns. The waterfalls are viewed as you walk up Waterfall Creek. The first waterfall is like a little grotto with moss-covered rocks and is a wonderful place to sit on a hot day. The track follows the stream up to the bigger falls where the water tumbles down the basalt cliff. Continue on and up and soon return to the picnic ground.
