Waterfall Walking Track, Kosciuszko National Park

Natural Attractions

Waterfall walking track is a great option for most weather conditions as it’s a sheltered walk which is also conveniently close to Jindabyne.

You can start the walk at either Sawpit Creek picnic area or Kosciuszko Education Centre. Then, once you’ve taken the underpass beneath Kosciuszko Road, it’s time to be blown away by the rugged beauty and diversity the Snowy Mountains region is renowned for.

You’ll pass through a variety of settings on this six kilometre hike, including tall eucalypt forest, outcrops of hefty granite boulders, and flowering and fruiting heathland. Then, of course, there’s the waterfall itself, which is wonderfully peaceful. Head to the platform on the south side for great scenic views. Be sure to check out the tall, fibrous-barked alpine ash trees nearby, which were logged in the area late last century and can grow to 90 metres tall.

This easy track is equally great for an afternoon bushwalk, early morning run, or nature-spotting session in Kosciuszko National Park. Local wildlife includes wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas, along with a range of birdlife in the trees.
