Summary: A very picturesque waterfall after heavy rain, Allenby Falls (or the Allenby Park Waterfal) cascades over multiple tiers. It can be reached via a few short bushwalking trails in Allenby Park, in Sydney's northern beaches.

There are a few cascades and waterfalls along Brookvale Creek in Allenby Park; Allenby Falls (also called Allenby Park Waterfall) is by far the most impressive – especially after heavy rain.

Allenby Park Waterfall

The creek cascades over multiple tiers, before flowing over a large rock platform. Take care when at the base of the falls, as the rock platfom is very slippery in places.

While access to the base of the main falls is easy, you can (with a bit of scrambling) also reach the bottom of the lower falls.

Getting to Allenby Falls

The easist access to Allenby Park Waterfall is from the bottom of Derna Crescent in Allambie Heights – it’s a relatively easy 200m to the waterfall. There are a few other entry points around Allambie Heights, Brookvale and Beacon Hill which provide access to the bushwalking trails in Allenby Park.
