This waterfall has not been rated.
Hidden down a small, unnamed creek at the end of a forestry road in the Picton River Conservation Area is a gorgeous 15 metre high waterfall. The falls have no official name, but have unnoficially been given the name Riveaux Falls after the mountain they are sourced from. There is also no track to the falls, with access only to be attempted experienced off track hikers.
To reach Riveaux Falls, turn onto Picton Road from Arve Road, continuing across the bridge over Picton River before keeping right onto Riveaux Road at the Y intersection with West Picton Road. Two kilometres further, turn left onto the unmarked road leading to the falls, the first left you come to on Riveaux Road. Continue on this road for 7km until it terminates just past the culvert over the waterfall's creek. Push through the thick layer of cutting grass by the road, and head towards the creek. From here, continue downstream past some really pretty cascades, trying to keep to the northern (river left) side of the creek as the falls get closer. It is best to head away from the creek as you approach the very top of the waterfall, and towards the edge of a logging coupe on the northern bank. This side provides a relatively straightforward route to the base through the rainforest, compared to the southern side which is steeper and littered with fallen logs.
Riveaux Falls are well worth the effort required to to reach them, with the hike difficult but only about 350 metres each way. While the high rainfall of the area means they would flow well for much of the year, the creek only has a small drainage, so in drier periods there would likely not be much to see. To justify the long drive and off-track walk, visit in winter or spring for the best chance of seeing the very attractive falls at their best.
