OXLEY FALLS AND LEWIS FALLS

The Mersey Forest Road

Very pretty Oxley Falls.  About an hour and a half from the start of the track at the car park on the Mersey forest road the track reaches a well defined T-junction.  On the return journey, there is a distinct red arrow painted on a tree indicating the main track turns left.  A hundred metres or so to the left (on the way in) a moss covered clearing can be seen.  After following the track and crossing 2 mossy clearings a trail to the right can be picked up indicated by plastic tape attached to bushes and trees.  The taped trail in fact also heads to the left but is not at all visible from the main track where it emerges a few hundred metres from the T-junction.  The water level in the river was perfect for these falls in the image below on the day we visited.

 

It becomes evident that the best parts of the Lees' Paddocks walk are the areas around creeks and the diversions to the river.  The track is very wet and at times muddy in places - particularly the half hour after passing the huts just below the car park.  However, by watching your step you can manage the trip without getting your feet too wet.

About half an hour before the Oxley Falls junction there is a well defined taped diversion to Lewis Falls.  A pretty walk to the falls.  An interesting aspect of the walk in is the bush on the opposite side of the river is dry eucalypt forest whereas most of the walk is in myrtle rainforest.
