Walking and driving instructions

 

Scout`s Falls is roughly a 40 minutes’ drive away from Coffs Harbour. From Coffs Harbour head north along the A1. Near Arrawarra turn to the left onto Sherwood Creek Rd and follow it for the next30.5km. The road surface is unsealed for the last 14km.

There is a small car park, to our left, near the Sherwood Nature Reserve sign immediately past the bridge over the Middle Creek. There are no facilities there.

An un-official trail starts from here. It follows the creek, and can be slippery. Take extra care! You will reach a small cascade and a swimming hole after 5 minutes of walk. The main waterfall is reached via further 10 minutes of walk.

Return via the same route. Total walking time is about 30 minutes.
