About Sensation Gorge Falls

Sensation Gorge, located approximately 7km's west of Mole Creek, is home to a couple of unnamed waterfalls that flow north on Overflow Creek. Overflow Creek doesn't always have a good flow of water, and Sensation Gorge Falls are best seen after periods of wet weather. However, the Gorge itself is stunning in its own right, and would be worthy a visit whether water was flowing or not.

When driving to Overflow Creek from Mole Creek, you will see a sign on the right hand side of the road that says 'Sensation Gorge Conservation Area'. However, the hike to the waterfalls commences on the southern end of the Gorge, where a bridge on Liena Road crosses Overflow Creek. Park your vehicle off the road near the bridge, and walk northwards along the eastern side of the creek. A track does exist, albeit overgrown, and at times you may need to work your own way northwards. 

At times, you wil have to walk up hill, away from the creek in order to move forward. However, the track will wind itself back down gradually until you reach the top of the first waterfall. 

The first waterfall drops approximately 5 metres, with the only realistic viewing spot for this waterfall at the very top. Further downstream, about 20 metres is the 2nd waterfall (pictured), and at this point, you have to work your own way down to the banks of the creek. Care will need to be taken due to loose scree scattered in the area.
