Waterfall Creek Hike (Billy Goat Waterfall, Western River Wilderness Protection Area)

About the Walking Trail

A quiet secluded walk following a track to Billy Goat Waterfall. The trail fire track with some shady trees and gently descends the valley to Waterfall Creek. Crossing the creek on stepping stones, the walk follows a walking trail which winds through shady sheoak trees to end at a lookout with views of the waterfall. Although the waterfall is high, it only flows during winter or after rains.

The walk is in Western River Wilderness Protection Area (formerly known as Western River Conservation Park) and the trail begins at Gate 2, at a small carpark on Colmans Road, which is 9.3km off of the Playford Highway (the dirt road to Cape Borda.)
