Starting from the Crystal Cascades car park at the end of Redlynch Intake Road, this return walk takes you to the Fairy Falls, exploring the dense rainforest along the way. Expect a gorgeous little waterfall and a deep pool that almost feels like it’s yours. There was a large, thick log(2019) right in the middle of the pool giving the scenery a bit more of an unexplored feel. Would make for some good photos as well if it’s still there. Keep an eye out for yabbies around the pool, and take care whilst walking on the rocks as they can be quite slippery when wet. You may need to do a bit of rock hopping/scrambling. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
