Summary: Crystal Creek Falls is a tiered waterfall located just next to McCarrs Creek Road, but hidden from views by trees.

Hidden from view by trees, Crystal Creek Falls is just metres from McCarrs Creek Road. The 20m high falls are formed by Crystal Creek cascading over a number of rock tiers, before going under the road and flowing into McCarrs Creek. The creek starts a short distance upstream of the falls within Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, as a shallow six metre pool.

Near the base of the waterfall are a few small rock pools – cylindrical depressions where the rock has been eroded by the water current.


Although hardly spectacular, the falls are easy to get to and after rain will have a decent flow of water.
