5 minute walk to waterfall
Avalanche Creek Waterfall
If you're after a shorter walk, this one's for you.
Very early on in the walk you can enjoy a charming view up the creek to the left where you’ll see blue pools, cascades, and the lowest tier of Avalanche Creek Waterfall. Or head up the formed stone steps to the platform for a closer look.
The track is called the Millennium Walk and starts beside the Visitor Centre. Follow the path along the base of the hill towards the village. Small trout are often seen in Avalanche Creek from the historic bridge. From here, the path goes up to a viewing platform overlooking the Avalanche Creek Waterfall, which is lit at night.
