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.
