Andamira Waterfall / Leask Creek Falls

Although not a huge waterfall, it’s quite picturesque with just the traffic sounds from the nearby F3 freeway imposing on the otherwise serene location. Although the location is very photoegnic at any time, the waterfall can dry up if there’s no rain, so it’s best visited after some heavy rain for the best photos.
