Location - Paluma Range National Park, North Queensland, Australia
Difficulty - Grade 5, bushwalking experience recommended
Flash flooding level - High
This creek is used to pump water from Paluma Dam to Crystal Creek at the base of the range where the Intake Plant picks up the water again. For this reason, the creek can flash flood and catch you off-guard.
This creek, or the neighbouring ridgeline, allows for access to the base of Crystal Falls without the assistance of ropes.
