Summary: Best visited after rain, the Tree Fern Gully Falls is in the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden. The Mueller Track passes the top of the waterfall, and an informal pad leads to the base.

One of two signposted waterfalls in the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden, Tree Fern Gully Falls is along the Mueller Track. It’s formed by Tree Fern Gully Creek plunging off a rock platform. You can get close to the top of the falls from the formal bushwalking track.

It’s far more impressive from the base of the falls, although this requires an off-track scramble down from the Mueller Track to the creek.
