The Sherrard Falls is a cascade waterfall on an unnamed stream that is located in the New England region of New South Wales, Australia.

Location and features[edit]

The waterfall is situated adjacent to the Waterfall Way between the town of Dorrigo and the locality of Thora, in the Dorrigo National Park. It is around 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) from the town of Dorrigo and around 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the Newell Falls.[3] The bridge across Sherrard Falls is one lane. Vehicular and pedestrian access and viewing of the Sherrard Falls is difficult due to no car parking on the narrow Waterfall Way.[4] The Waterfall Way is subject to closure at Sherrard Falls and Newell Falls in times of high rain, due to flooding over the road.
