Walking and driving instructions


Silver Cascade is roughly a 2hrs’ drive away from Sydney, or just 15minutes’ from Blackheath town centre. From Sydney head west along the M4 which becomes A32 until you reach Blackheath (roughly 1h45minutes). Then continue driving along the main highway for the next 5km, then turn right onto Victoria Falls Road and follow it for 5km until you reach the road's end. There is a dedicated car park here. The road surface is un-sealed for the last 5km.

The parking, at the end of the road, has picnic tables, toilets and track` sign.

From here, follow an easy track which leads to a stunning valley` lookout, then a never ending set of stairs down to the junction of Cascade (to the right) and Main track (Burra Korain Flat, to the left). Keep to the right - follow a side track leading to the Cascade and you will reach its base within 5 minutes. From here go back to the main track and either return via the same path, or which is highly recommended keep to the main track for 15-20 minutes until you reach the base of Victoria Falls (if you go to Victoria Falls then add 30-60 minutes to your journey).

Return via the same route. Total walking time is 2hrs. NOT recommended for small kids.

Silver Cascade is a permanent waterfall beautiful all year round.
