Summary: Tank Creek Waterfall cascades over a high cliff, before flowing into Tank Cove and the Hawkesbury River

The Tank Creek Waterfall is another waterfall along Tank Creek with no official name; it’s also called “Tank Creek Last Falls”, being the last major waterfall before Tank Creek reaches Tank Cove and the Hawkesbury River. It’s not the most spectacular waterfall from above, although there are nice views over the Hawkesbury River.

Around the rock platform at the top of the waterfall are a number of Aboriginal engravings, including fish, birds and many mundoes (footprints).

The best view of the Tank Creek Waterfall is from the informal trail that continues up to The Icicles.

Getting to Tank Creek Waterfall

The waterfall, which is at the southern end of Brisbane Water National Park, is reached via a fairly long bushwalk. You can access the waterfall from the north or the south:

  • from Woy Woy Road (via Tunnel Trail and Rocky Ponds Trail) – approx 16km return. (This route is described in Rocky Ponds Trail to The Icicles.)
  • from Little Wobby Wharf (ferry access) – approx 10km return
  • or you can walk from Little Wobby Beach to Woy Woy station, which is about 22km one-way.
