Summary: The Centennial Glen Track at Blackheath goes behind the picturesque Centennial Falls, while a side-track takes you down to the base of the waterfall

The Centennial Glen Track traverses Centennial Glen in Blackheath, and passes underneath the picturesque Centennial Falls. The tiered waterfall is near the head of Centennial Glen Creek.

There’s a nice view of the upper drop from the walking track from both sides of the waterfall.

For the best views of the entire waterfall, look for a rough track that descends to the base of the falls (and take care at the bottom, as the rocks are very slippery).

Getting to Centennial Falls

The waterfall is most easily reached from the Centennial Glen Carpark, where a fairly short but steep track descends past The Grotto and Slippery Dip Falls. Centennial Glen Carpark is at the end of Centennial Glen Road (off Shipley Road) in Blackheath and is 1.7km drive or walk from Blackheath station.

Downstream of the Centennial Falls are the Slippery Dip Falls and The Grotto: you can visit all three waterfalls on a 2.5km loop walk (see map below), or via the longer Porters Pass and Colliers Causeway loop.
