Information

Canal Creek is on the Old Telegraph Track and is a crossing upstream of Twin Falls. It is the first crossing going north of Eliot Falls. Several alternate crossings, some near deep holes. Take your time to find the safest passage across by walking and testing the depth with stick etc.
Update Aug 2016 - the place is trashed beyond recognition after 8 years. Huge gouges in the sand and it looks like a moonscape.
