Lewis Falls is a multi tiered waterfall of approximately 8 metres in height, situtated off the Lees Paddocks hiking track in between Walls of Jerusalem National Park, and the overland track at Cradle Mountain - Lake St. Clair National Park. Lees Paddocks track leads you through thick forest and open grasslands to Lees Hut. Lewis Falls, and Oxley Falls are small side trips that can be taken from this track to Lees Hut.
From Mole Creek, drive west along Liena Road, and then head south along Mersey Forest Road. Along this drive, you will pass Lake Parangana on the western side, and will then drive southwards past Lake Rowallan on the eastern side. The road will become unsealed, and can be quite rough due to frequent potholes. A vehicle with good clearance is recommended. About 1km south of Lake Rowallan, a makeshift area to park your car off the road is available on the eastern side, with a track with a gate located on the opposite side of the road.
The commencement of the Lees Paddocks Track is not sign posted from the road. The hike commences through a gated area (which is sometimes open) sloping downhill for about 200 metres. After a few minutes walk, you will be greeted by a steel suspended footbridge that spand across the Mersey River. Once across the river, an information sign will greet you with information about the area, and the necessity for you to clean your boots before entering the track. Lewis Falls is located approximately 2kms from this location, and is a small diversion from the main track, but is not sign posted. Previous hikers have tied ribbons to trees to guide you in the general direction of the waterfall. However, we rcommend people pre-plan their excurision to Lewis Falls before visiting Lewis Falls. A GPS should also be used (do not rely on mobile phone GPS, there is no mobile reception in the area).
The hike itself is relatively easy with very few slopes to negotiate. However, it tends to be muddy, and in wetter times, the track itself can be covered in water. Waterproof hiking shoes is recommended. The area is also prone to snow in colder weather, so ensure you check the forecast to ensure you can safely journey into this region.
