Quarry Creek Falls

The Tuena Creek runs in westerly valleys to the Abercrombie River, through a steep valley. Its' tributaries have tiny catchments and seldom seem to flow. When they do, as this one at Quarry Creek is now, they often resemble mud flows than water falls. 

The Quarry Creek Falls is the most accessible of the falls that dot the old gold fields of the Abercrombie - and its muddy flow does not hold any of the beauty of nearby Grove Creek - save that coming across it flowing at all is a pleasant surprise.  

The great stone works that arch across the flow (and a second one nearby) is just as much a surprise, and leaves us with a cautionary thought - what experience led to such works for a gully that most often sleeps in the heat of this remote corner.
