About Oxley Falls

Oxley Falls is the 2nd waterfall on a hike along the Lee's Paddock track, on the Upper Mersey River. Situated south of Lake Rowallan, you drive down Mersey Forest Road, past the Walls of Jerusalem turn off. Eventually, you will reach an area where there is a gate, and it is at this point the hike begins. There is no signage in the area to indicate the commencement of the track, so it is essential you pre-plan your outing.  

Oxley Falls along with Lewis Falls are diversions from the main track, both of which are not signed. Some ribbons are hanging from trees that will guide you to each waterfall.

The hike will first take you to Lewis Falls, and as you continue along the track further up stream, a diversion will need to be taken to reach Oxley Falls. The track to Oxley Falls is not sign posted, and can easily be missed, so care will need to be taken to determine how to reach the waterfall.

The main waterfall that makes up Oxley Falls is approximately 10 - 12 metres in height, consisting of a couple of tiers. About 200metres upstream is a pretty cascade of about 3 - 4 metres in height. When in full flow, Oxley Falls is a very powerful waterfall.
