Upper Preston Falls is the unofficial name of a waterfall situated on Preston Creek and is the first waterfall in a series of 3 waterfalls that along a stretch of Preseton Creek approximately 1 kilometre. The waterfall itself drops about 4 to 5 metres and is best viewed from side on due to a large rock sitting directly in front of where the water drops. Directly behind the waterfall is a semi sheltered cave that provides a close up view of the falls from behind.

Access to Upper Preston Falls is relatively easy when approached from upstream. On the northern side of the falls you walk down a slope where old makeshift pine steps still exist. There isn’t any distinct path, so care will need to be taken to negotiate to the base of the falls. However, with its proximity close to the road, the walk is very short.

Upper Preston Falls is close to Preston Falls and Delaneys Falls.
