CHASM FALLS

The Great Western Tiers

A couple of kilometres before the Meander Falls car park, Smoko Road is passed on the right.  A few kilometres up the road is the start of the Chasm Falls track and the Mother Cummings Peak track.  Immediately at the start of the track, Smoko Creek must be negotiated.  At first look the creek would be impassable after heavy rain.  As such care must be taken if heavy rain in imminent to ensure a safe return trip.

 

After a few hundred metres a clearing is reached where a track can be seen heading off to the left.  The track is not the Chasm Falls track but heads down to Mother Cummings Rivulet to a series of cascades.  Another track is across the rivulet which heads to Charlie Nutting Camp - another 45 minutes upstreem.  Worth the 30 minutes or so return trip!

 

The Chasm Falls track continues up a well defined old logging road.  The road zig zags up for about a kilometre where a clearing is reached.  Here signs show the way to the walks.  The day we visited the signs had fallen down and were in a state of disrepair.  An alternative track heads to the right to Smoko Falls and Mother Cummings Peak (south).

 

The walk can only be described as one of the ultimate pristine walks through rainforest beside the crystal clear waters of Mother Cummings Rivulet.  It was difficult to find information on this walk. 

 

2 to 2 1/2 hours return on a well defined easy track.  However, the temptation is to take numerous pictures along the way.  We visited in late Autumn with large amounts of fungi providing a colour spectacle.  See the gallery.

 

Log crossing high above the chasm taken from the top of the falls.  Relatively dangerous and not for the timid!
