Mountain Gully Creek Falls - first ascent
Mountain Gully Creek rises on the south west flank of Mt Gourock. A small stream, it is fed by high bogs which are charged by moist westerlies from the coast.
The waterfall here drops over Boro granites (pink-grey in color, often embedding quartz) to an abandoned line of road cut by stonework and a pipe. I climbed up the right side of the fall, but was pushed back by rain and lack of purchase.
Two giant gums that once grew at the top of the fall, have fallen following the fire and wind storms that followed.
Scattered near the falls are a wealth of orchids from Diuris in spring to Dipodium and Eriochilus later.
