Summary: The America Bay Waterfall is at the head of America Bay, where the creek drops off a tall cliff onto the rocks below.

A small and unnamed creek plunges off the edge of the cliff at America Bay and into the valley below. This is the main America Bay Waterfall, which is at the end of the walking track.

The large (and unfenced) rock platform makes a good spot for lunch, although this is a busy and popular track on weekends. There’s a nice view over America Bay, and this is also a good place to watch the sun set.

Just above the rock platform are some smaller cascades.

It’s possible (but discouraged) to scramble down to the base of the falls, but there isn’t a great view of the falls from the bottom.

Getting to America Bay Waterfall

There’s a nice walk down to the top of the waterfall from West Head Road; the path also passes some Aboriginal engraving sites. It’s a fairly popular walk on the weekend.
