Sailors Falls

View the spectacular drop of the twin falls from the picnic area, just a short stroll from the car park.

Take some time to read the interpretive signage detailing the history and geology of the area and taste the fresh mineral water from the pump near the picnic area.

Feel like stretching your legs? Take the 1.4km loop walk from the picnic area, down the stairs and follow the creek to the lower mineral springs. Here you follow an old water race to the base of the falls, amongst the ferns and loop back across the creek to return.

Sailors Falls is thought to be named after the sailors who jumped ship to seek gold in the area during the 1850’s gold rush. Throughout this area you can spot the remnants of water races which delivered water around the gold diggings to uncover the nuggets of gold.
