While not the most spectacular of waterfalls, the Crater Falls is a series of picturesque cascades along Crater Creek, which flows out of Crater Lake. This is the first waterfall along the famous Overland Track when walking from Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair.
The cascades have a cumulative height of about 30m, and consist of a number of discrete 5-10m falls. The uppermost falls can be seen from a viewing platform along the trail, which closely follows Crater Creek.
The lowermost tier of Crater Falls drops about 5m through a narrow chute into the shaded forest.
Getting to Crater Falls
The cascades are about 1.8km along the Overland Track, from Ronny Creek (on Dove Lake Road). The track follow the creek for a short distance next to the cascades, which can be seen from multiple points along the track – including a lookout platform.
