Featherstone Falls are a short 15
minute walk above O'Grady's Falls. Access is along a largely disused or little
used trail. The trail commences about 30 metres beyond the foot bridge in front
of O'Grady's Falls directly opposite the stump of a fallen tree. The track is
fairly difficult in places and only recommended for experienced walkers.
Suggest they are the prettiest
falls on Mt Wellington. Several little cascades below the main falls.
A shallow section makes for an
easy crossing. Not so easy climbing up to the track. A little cascade below the
main falls - RIGHT. Shades of Secret Falls further down the mountain.
The tree above is very awkward.
The little broken branch can be used to stop sliding off and down the tree. The
only real obstacle to access the falls easily.
This tape marker in the image
above is visible from near the creek above O'Grady's Falls. The image was taken
on the way out with the falls directly behind. At this point the track drops
down a few steps and heads back in the opposite direction on a well constructed
section for about 20 metres and heads towards towards the creek.
