Walk Description

From the Sheoak picnic area follow signs to Wonwondah Falls, where the track crosses Allenvale Road.  The track also crosses Sharps Road and descends from above Henderson Creek.

Take the short path to the falls.  Return to continue on to a T-intersection, turning left to Henderson Falls.  At the second bridge, stop to admire an enormous gum tree.  Return and follow the track straight ahead through a gully carpeted in ferns.  Enter the canyon with its steep walls, narrow passage and moss covered boulders.  On emerging from the canyon, turn right along Henderson Track to Phantom Falls.

Follow the track beside St George River back to Allenvale Mill Site carpark and return along the road to Sheoak Creek Picnic area.
