Love this walk

Beautiful falls.

I did this one last weekend, anticlockwise, about 5hrs very satisfying walk. First half of the trails was quite normal, just a dull up hill in the woods, and there are quite a lot of people doing trail running on the Border Track to Binna Burra.
when turned off from the Border Track, it was getting exciting, along the way down the Green Mountain there are dozens of waterfalls and the track are rougher, wilder and much more fun too.
I needed to cross the creek quite a few times, and the rock was really slippery. I finally saw the native blue crayfish this time.
highly recommend this one.
BTW, the GPS signal was bad, I tried to record it, but my phone just kept searching for signal., the good thing is the tail is well signed.

Very easy and enjoyable, one of the most peaceful places I’ve been too!

This track is now opened as of 13 Oct 2018

beautiful walk spectacular views of an amazing water fall

It was a lovely little hike this weekend. We made our way to Curtis Falls and then did the Lower Creek Circuit. It worked out being exactly 3km.

If you're game, have a hike while it's really raining and you will hear the waterfalls roar.

The view is incredible

Fairly easy but a bit of a steep incline back up.

It was a nice, easy track. It is well signed and easy to follow. Also, very well maintained with a great view at the top!

Completed the Toolona Creek Circuit anti-clockwise starting at O'Reilys car park via the Boarder Track. Visited the Naturalist's Cairn Site along the way and camped overnight at Mount Bithongabel Bush Camp. Has been no rain for weeks possibly months but still water flowing over the many waterfalls and no leeches - highly recommend!

ALSO NOTE: this loop is advertised as 15km, my GPS showed 26km loop - check it out in recordings..

Epic trail!

Completed the track clockwise starting at O'Reilys Rainforest Retreat carpark via the Boarder Track. Visited the Naturalist's Cairn Site along the way and stayed the night at Mount Bithongabel Bush Camp. Many waterfalls along the way and no sign of leeches (although it was very dry). Photographers dream - Enjoy!

This is a great walking trail for people of all fitness levels as well as it offers beautiful views of Brisbane and the Brisbane River.

Easy track - can’t wait till whole section is open again! Is worth going to Warringa Pool especially in summer

Very touristy, not for us.

Admittedly we were there on a weekend, Saturday. Still.

Lots of people walking off the path and breaking every rule for a Kodak moment. Yuk.

The falls itself was nice. As usual falls are better after a bit of rain.

You enter from the top but you can also choose to walk to the bottom of the falls.

Nice hike to get a little taste of the Daintree

Excellent hike. Great water falls and clear ponds.

Really really pretty, lovely palms and plant life and the waterfall is gorgeous. Great on a sunny day

Old favourite, good little walk in Mt Tamborine, the falls themselves can be accessed without completing the entire walk, and is also suitable for kids

One of my favorite trail. It helps that we used to live 500m from the trailhead in the late 1990's and we used to take our young children for a nature walk regularly. 20 years later it still is a wonderful trail whenever we visit Mt Tamborine (minus the kids so, therefore, a lot quieter...). The falls can be quite full during the wet season, so be prepared to get sprayed a bit, but being a tropical rainforest, it is a welcome relief rather than an inconvenience during hot and humid days. You will hear lots of birds and be on the lookout for marsupials early or late during the day. You may even spot some water dragons near the waterfalls also.

Very beautiful, takes you up through Antarctic Beech, then down into gorgeous creek lines and waterfalls! Great views on a good day if the cloud isn’t in your way! Beware leeches if it’s wet!

Gorgeous hike! There is a spectacular lookout to Mount Warning at Echo Point!

This track has been closed for some time due to extensive damage from tropical cyclone Debbie. It’s advised to check with Qld Parks and Wildlife first. (8/1/18)

Nice easy walk. Marked trail and swimming hole. Should definitely get the bus if you want to maximise the walk through Mossman Gorge.

Albert River runs off the main border track. Very private hike with hardly any other hikers to be seen. Tracks run along the river with lots of waterfalls. Really enjoyed this one as a solo hike. Track is reasonably easy to spot.

Easy loop trail through Mossman Gorge, which is part of Daintree National Park. Occasional signs along the trail identify trees and suggest wildlife to look out for. We saw several colourful Australian brushturkeys and watched a little pied cormorant fishing in the river.
