The Waterfall Walking Track is a pleasant enough walk through forest to a waterfall and a collection of big boulders in Kosciuszko National Park.

Waterfall Walk, Kosciuszko National Park NSW

The Waterfall Walking Track is is a pleasant enough walk through a variety of forest types at about 1200m of elevation in Kosciuszko National Park near Jindabynbe. As the name suggests there is a waterfall along the way, but I think the highlight is a collection of giant boulders. Not one of the glitzy alpine walks further up Kosciuszko Road but worthwhile for a change of scene.

You can start at Sawpit Creek picnic area, going at first under the road. It’s a straightforward and mostly flat circuit walk: more information on the NPWS website, and you can see the route on Google Maps.

The waterfall at mid-way. You have to scramble over a fence to see it this well. This photo taken by my wife.

I didn’t see this wallaby at first, and it gave me quite a fright when it first moved.
