Situated on a branch of East Cam River, Upper Cam Falls is a small waterfall of approximately 4 metres in height, popular with photographers due to the formation of the rocks the water flows over. Upper Cam Falls is surrounded by many ferns embedded in a temperate rainforest, providing a delightful backdrop to this very pretty waterfall.
Upper Cam Falls is best seen in the winter, suffering very little flow in the warmer months. Colloquially, Upper Cam Falls is also known as Lockwood Creek Falls.
While travelling south on Ridgley Highway, turn Right onto Talunah Road (C103) at Hampshire. Follow for approx 5km to Lockwood Creek Road which will be on your left. Lockwood creek road is signposted with a wooden sign and is a gravel road. Follow it for about 200m to a fork in the road. Take the right hand fork and follow it for another 200m approx to a small car park on the left, just before a boom gate. Do not attempt to drive through the boom gate as the road has been partly washed away. The falls are approximately 20 metres from the right hand side of the road, downstream from the creek that has washed away part of the road.
