OTHER AVAILABILITY


McGowans Falls

The Tarkine

When  driving to Cradle Mountain, Queenstown or Corinna, a scenic drive can be taken from Somerset south through the Hellyer Gorge on the Murchison Highway. 12 kilometres south of Somerset, there is a turnoff to the west to West Takone. About 30 minutes drive from the turnoff the track to McGowans Falls is reached. A very pretty short walk of about 10 or 15 minutes takes you to the top of the falls. There is a steep but awkward track to the bottom of the falls which is not too difficult. Well worth the effort. Particularly pretty with a low water flow. Another classic short walk.

 

 
 

 
 

Getting there

 
 

Pass the Weather Radar at West Takone on the right.

Turn Left here - continuation of Farquhars Road.

 
 

Turn right here into Relapse Creek Road.
 

About another 2 kms from the start of Relapse Creek Rd to the start of the track
