Flagstone Falls is an impressive multi-terraced waterfalls that drop down the range 300 metres.

How to get there

Drive to Wallaman Falls and continue past the camping ground. Cross Stony Creek bridge and soon after is a gate. Either park your car here and walk to the second gate, or continue onto the second gate (room for one or two cars). Walk along Garrawalt Road until you reach Garrawalt Creek Bridge. Continue across the bridge and past Burgoo Creek bridge and Black Adder Creek bridge before arriving at Flagstone Creek.

Make your way downstream just on the edge on the right side of the creek.

Very soon you will arrive at the mini-slot canyon.

Scramble up and around to the right to get a good view of the drop off and the top of main drop of Flagstone Falls.
