Follow Central Mines trail to The Falls Water Falls at Summer Hill Creek for breathtaking views of the creek cascading down over two levels. The falls are lovely all year around, but are particularly striking when water levels in the creek are high following heavy rainfall. At the bottom of this glorious waterfall, you’ll find a tranquil swimming hole that makes the most perfect place to cool off on a hot summer’s day.

This is also a great spot to get a great sense of the diversity of this area, including its gold mining boom-era history, with the old water race that once fed water through to mining areas. The waterfalls are also a lovely spot for off-bank fishing, birdwatchers will want to be sure to bring their binoculars to glimpse local woodland birds such as eastern and crimson rosellas, and owls.

Pack a picnic and visit the nearby Fourth Crossing picnic area or take a walk along Historic Water Race walking track.
