Summary: Kikkiya Waterfall along Shrimptons Creek is a small but picturesque tiered waterfall. It's a bit tricky to reach.

According to Google Maps, this tiered waterfall along Shrimptons Creek is called Kikkiya Waterfall – although it’s not shown or named on any topographic map. It’s more likely this waterfall has no name. Although the waterfall is quite picturesque, Shrimptons Creek is fairly polluted and there’s a lot of rubbish that has been swept down the creek.

Getting to Kikkiya Waterfall

There is a very rough and unmarked track to the waterfall, which branches off a trail that starts near Christies Field (at the end of Christies Road) and descends to the Lane Cove River. Once you reach the falls, it;s a relatively easy scramble down to the base.

The falls are fairly close to where Shrimptons Creek flows into Lane Cove River, and below the Blaxland Falls which are along the same creek.
