Balaka Falls, also known as Hunts Falls and Hunts Creek Falls, have been on my bucket list for a very long time. The only reason for the delay was the weather and its timing. The falls really only have water flowing immediately after rain because they are buried within the midst of Sydney's north western suburbs. So I needed a Friday night of rain. Finally we got it. After many months. Just after dawn I left home to drive to the falls, and before Led Zep's "Kashmir" had finished playing I had parked my car. Two minutes later I was at the falls. That's how close they are to where I live. In fact, one minute's drive from this spot is a 6 lane main arterial road.
