Warning – Unsafe to visit

The region around Gadds Falls was destroyed by bush fires in the summer of 2015/16. Please avoid this waterfall until the area is deemed safe by authorities.

What was once one of the prettiest short walks to a waterfall, Gadds Falls is situated west of Lake Parangana, south of Liena. Access to the waterfall is on a short track that commences from Mersey Forest Road. There is no car parking available, so you will be required to park your car off the road. in the summer of 2015/16 bush fires destroyed the region where Gadds Falls is situated.  Then in July of 2016 heavy rains and floods causes land slides in and around Gadds Falls further impacting the area. Now, accessing Gadd’s Falls is incredibly dangerous, and should be avoided.

Some confusion to the correct spelling of Gadds Falls remains, with many documented sources spelling it as Gads Falls.

The track to Gadds Falls takes you uphill alongside Gadds Creek, passing small cascades along the way until you reach Gadd’s Falls. The track will encourage you to cross the creek by foot to get a closer look of Gadds Falls. The waterfall is a smallish single drop that then cascades along the creek, eventually leading into Mersey River.
