But I will take another swipe at it: This watetfall is too small to be Govetts Leap falls. So it might be the one at the Katoomba and Govetts Creeks junction that used to be labeled Arethusa but now is called something else?

Better if I had said -
Right valley, wrong falls.[/quote]

Drat, please disregard my previous post then!

It's not in Govetts Gorge. It's in Grose Valley.

Not Fortress, although this named creek is also a canyon. However, you can walk from the valley to plateau and keep dry feet via the (unofficially) named adjacent pass.

You need to be further West, but it is on the Southside.

Crayfish Creek? In which case the pass you refer to might be Brown's pass?

Thanks CBee. Anywhere in that region always reminds me of camping beside the Noosa River in a Woolies A frame tent back in the early 70s.
I'm getting ready for a trip, anyone can go next.

Shame about the ferals, gotta be northern Kosci. I'm inclined to think somewhere around Tantangara.
Maybe Gurrangorambla Creek/Flat?
