WESTMORELAND FALLS - MOLE CREEK

The Great Western Tiers

NOTE: The Westmoreland Falls track was washed away after 30cm of rain fell on the slopes of The Great Western Tiers in a few hours on 14th January 2011. The rain did considerable damage to the falls. The falls are now twice as wide as shown in the image to the right. The whole area in front of the falls has been cleared away allowing a good panorama of the falls and the cascade to the right of the falls.

 

THE TRACK HAS NOW BEEN REOPENED

Our search for West Moreland Falls started at Mole Creek where you can find a huge map depicting the attractions of the Great Western Tiers. The sign is permanent and most helpful as it clearly indicates any destination you may choose plus times and grades of walks. See image below!

 

The start of the track can be found towards the end of Wet Cave Road.  Follow Caveside Road from near the information centre at Mole Creek for a few kilometres to a T junction.  Wet Cave Road heads off to the right and is unsealed.  The Wet Cave reserve is soon reached straight ahead.  Take the left turn at the Wet Caves reserve entrance and continue past the last farm on the right avoiding the right turn to the farm.  A small car park is on the right another few hundred metres further on up a slight rise. The track is now well signposted.  The track follows the back fence of the farm for the half kilometre or so then turns left along a new track high above the creek

 

The area might better be named "The Westmoreland Cascades". There are several smaller cascades in and around the falls.  A superb grotto of small streams, falls and pristine forest.

 

45 minutes each way on a very well marked track.  The track is very well constructed and quite easy.
