Summary: Slippery Dip Falls cascades down a slot between two cliffs, next to the Colliers Causeway bushwalking track in Blackheath.

The Slippery Dip Falls looks quite impressive – but is not so easy to photograph. Although the Colliers Causeway track descends via a set of stone stairs right next to the waterfall, it’s hard to capture the full length of the drop.

From the bottom of the stairs, you get a good view of the top section of the falls.

Once you reach the base of the falls, the top of the cascade is mostly out of sight.

Getting to Slippery Dip Falls at Centennial Glen

The Slippery Dip Falls is reached from the Centennial Glen Carpark, where a fairly short but steep track descends firstly to The Grotto and then to this waterfall. Centennial Glen Carpark is at the end of Centennial Glen Road (off Shipley Road) in Blackheath and is 1.7km drive or walk from Blackheath station.

Upstream of Slippery Dip Falls is The Grotto and Centennial Falls: you can visit all three waterfalls on a 2.5km loop walk, or via the longer Porters Pass and Colliers Causeway loop.
