About Phillips Falls

Typically a seasonal waterfall, Phillips Falls can often be a trickle.  In good flow, Phillips Falls is a really pleasant medium sized waterfall that has a short walk from the road. There is no discernable track to access the waterfall, and you very much have to meander your way through the scrub to walk downstream to access the base of the waterfalls. A few hundred metres into your walk, you will need to venture steeply down the hill area to reach the base of the falls.  This section of the walk is well marked with ribbons that guide you to the base of the falls.

How to get to Phillips Falls

Access to Phillips Falls is mostly on bitumen road. You must drive along Olivers Rd (C138), and then turn down Cockatoo Rd (unsigned), which is a an unsealed Rd. Drive until you reach a bridge that crorsses a creek, and park your car there. From there, walk on the eastern side of the creek to access the Falls.  It's best to walk about 20 metres from the edge of the creek, for easy walking through the scrub
