About Feather Falls

Feather Falls is a waterfall that flows over the southern ridge of Cathedral Mountain in the region known as the Never Never.  When flowing, Feather Falls can be easily seen from many locations from the Never Never, including from Junction Hut and Junction Lake.  

Interestingly, Feather Creek is a very small creek, that heavily relies on decent rain or snow to produce enough water for Feather Falls to be viewable.

The quickest way to Feather Falls is along the Moses Creek Track, a track needed to visit Grail Falls.  A diversion in the track just before you reach Grail Falls is signposted advising the direction to Junction Lake, and needs to be travelled to reach the Never Never.  The track is very overgrown, unmaintained, and in places very difficult to follow. It's also one of the least scenic routes to Junction Lake, but is the quickest, taking 7 hours to get to the Never Never, and 5 hours to walk out.

Alternate routes to consider into the Never Never is the Junction Lake Track accessible from the Walls of Jerusalem Track, or the Lake Myrtle Track commencing from the side of Mersey Forest Road.  Both walks are longer than from Moses Creek Track, but offer much more pleasant scenery along the way.
