Andamira Waterfall, also known as the Leask Creek Falls, is a waterfall in the Brisbane Water National Park, near Girrakool. It’s formed by the Leask Creek tumbling over a wide fern-covered cliff, which is shaped a bit like an amphitheatre.
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.
Getting to Andamira Waterfall / Leask Creek Falls
This small waterfall is about an hour from Sydney or 15 minutes from Gosford; from the Central Coast Hwy/A49 take the B83 (for 2.5km) then turn left onto Girrakool Rd to the Girrakool Picnic Area. Facilities include toilets, BBQ, and picnic tables – a National Parks fee applies.
From the carpark, the Girrakool Loop passes a lookout over the waterfall. It’s a short scramble down to the base of the waterfall.
