About Dead Creek Falls

The seasonal Dead Creek, a tributary of Plenty River, is home to a tall, sloping waterfall unofficially known as Dead Creek Falls. No track leads to the falls, however there is an old, very overgrown forestry road on a ridge just south of the creek that provides the easiest access towards the falls. Park at the culvert over Dead Creek and follow this track until roughly level with the falls, then head into the scrub and across the scree towards the sound of water. While the falls are seasonal and are more of a long cascade than sheer waterfall, after rain they are still an impressive sight, and can be photographed from a number of vantage points including the top.
