Summary: A picturesque waterfall in a rainforest setting along the Mobong Walking Track, the Mobong Creek Cascade is also a nice and secluded swimming hole.

This small waterfall doesn’t have an official name (at least, it’s not named on any map), but it’s a picturesque cascade along the Mobong Walking Track. You first get a glimpse of the falls from the top (if you’re walking from the sothern end of the track), where the Mobong Creek plunges down through a gap in the rocks.

You then get a better view of the falls through the rainforest, as the track descends along the creek.

The track reaches the base of the Mobong Creek Cascade, where there is a large pool, which would be a very secluded spot for a swim (just look out for leaches!). Here you get the best view of the falls.

Getting to the Mobong Creek Cascade

You’ll pass the Mobong Creek Cascade if you’re doing the Mobong Walking Track (3.5km one-way or 6km loop returning along the road). The waterfall is about 600m along the walking track if you’re starting from the picnic area at the northern end, where there is another nice swimming hole (which I call the Mobong Creek Waterhole). The track is about an hour from Coffs Harbour, via Corramba Road and Eastern Dorrigo Way. (The last section along Moses Rock Road is unsealed, but suitable for all vehicles except after heavy rain.
