Burnies Creek, home to many waterfalls and cascades in the Great Western Tiers, is a water system that commences life near Adams Peak in the alpine region of The Great Western Tiers. The Creek cascades down between Projection Bluff and Ritters Crag, meandering over 750 metres downhill in a series of cascade systems.

Accessing Burnies Creek

Along side Burnies Creek is Warners Track, an excellent and well maintained hiking track that is accessible from Wiiteena Road near Jackeys Marsh. Although no official car parking is established at the commencement of the track, there is room for a maximum of two vehicles at the commencement of the track.

The hike is a constant uphill walk, quite steep at times, gradually working its way up to the Central Highlands. Along the way, many cascades and small waterfalls can be viewed, Once on the highlands, you will see panoramic views of Pine Lake. If you walk a small distance west, you will see magnificent views of Huntsman Lake and beyond.
