About Creekton Falls

Creekton Falls is a stunning waterfall situated in the Southwest National Park in Southern Tasmania, with a height of about 50 metres. Though being shorter than nearby Adamsons Falls it is equally as impressive. There are a number of access routes you can take to reach Creekton Falls.

From Adamsons Falls

The hike to Creekton Falls commences on Adamsons Falls Track and from the carpark a 1 hour hike will take you directly to Adamsons Falls. In front of the main waterfall, the start of the makeshift track to Creekton Falls begins, and you will have to cross the creek carefully to continue your walk. Orange tape tied to trees will guide you on a lengthy, difficult walk through very dense forest to Creekton Falls. The track is, for the most part, non-existant between Adamsons Falls and Creekton Falls, and the route has quite a few obstructions, such as fallen trees, that will need to be negotiated. The hike is slow, and despite the relatively short distance between the two waterfalls, it will take at least 2 hours to reach Creekton Falls from Adamsons Falls.

As you get closer to reaching your destination, old signs nailed to trees will help guide you to the correct location. From this point, a further 50 metres of walking will end with the stunning views of Creekton Falls.

An entire day will need to be dedicated to see Creekton Falls safely if you visit Adamsons Falls as well.

From Duckhole Lake

Creekton Falls can also be reached via Duckhole Lake, a small lake that is well worth a visit alone. Duckhole Lake Track is easy to hike on, and well maintained, but to reach Creekton Falls you must continue past the lake along an unmaintained trail that gets progressively rougher the further it goes. There are some obstructions in the form of fallen trees, as well as one particularly steep and slippery slope which has a rope to help you climb up it. The worst part of the track is the last section before the waterfall, however, which has several steep and slippery sections. Care must be taken on the last part of the trail. The walk is certainly not without its highlights though, and there is some beautiful rainforest in the vicinity of the falls, as well as a very pretty cascade right beside the track about 20 minutes away from Creekton Falls itself. This track can be combined with Adamsons Falls to make a loop walk of 5-6 hours in length with a car shuffle, or done as a return walk, which should take about 4 hours. While it is by no means easy, the walk from Duckhole Lake to Creekton Falls is far easier than the track between Adamsons and Creekton Falls.

How to get to Creekton Falls

From Hobart, drive south past Geeveston and head towards Southport. Signs in the region will guide you to 'Hastings Caves' and you will need to drive along Hastings Caves Road a couple of kilometres before turning right onto Chestermans Road. Chestermans Road is a forestry road; unsealed, and only wide enough for one vehicle. After approximately 1 kilometre driving along Chestermans Road the road forks, with signage indicating you need to learn left to the Adamsons Falls carpark.
