Excellent track for 98% of it. Some tricky water crossings though that were not so easy to see how to cross but the falls and scenery were all well worth the effort. I took the Canungra circuit clockwise which took me about 5 hours. I’d suggest packing lunch and eating it at the Yerralahla blue pool which is approximately the halfway point. You also definitely want to start this hike before midday if you take the Canungra circuit.

Beautiful trail with heaps of waterfalls along the way. So picturesque and a really nice, relatively easy walk to do. Some great slots for picnics near the waterfalls and photo opportunities! I’ve don’t this walk a few times and it is beautiful every time!

Some beautiful scenery along the way, especially if you take the little side tracks to the waterfalls. Had to climb up an embankment about half way round as a tree had come down and blocked the path Needed to be careful where we stepped as there are a lot of drop offs in areas where the path isn't too wide and is covered in leaves - probably would have been quite nervous of slipping if the weather was wet. Really nice walk though, with quite a gentle incline back up. Would do it again.

Some of the circuit had trees and branches blocking it, spend a fair bit of time close to the edge and edges are quite soft. Good walk lovely waterfalls, rock pools and water crossings. Occasionally wasn’t sure we were still on the track but then it suddenly comes good again.

Gorgeous track. I did it solo in 2 hours 50 minutes. Map my walk measured 13.75kms. I did all the side trails to the waterfalls and stopped to watch birds occasionally. I started at 0610 when the birds were at their peak of activity. Just beautiful! There are some nice little rock pools around the 7km mark if you’re keen for a dip. I definitely suggest starting early as by 0830 it was getting very hot (1st December).

Really nice walking. Moderate and not particularly challenging. The forest has loads of old trees dating back 1500 years. Brush box trees are spectacular! Poor things are being attacked by strangling figs. Unfortunately the trees are growing so well anymore due to many reasons so it may not be long before they go. Nice ponds, brooks, water holes and waterfalls along the way. Definitely worth going to.

One of our favourite walks, have done this trail many times. Gorgeous waterfalls starting with the trip down to Picnic Rock, and following the trail down to the Box Log falls. Have spotted spiney blue crashfish in the waters below the falls on many occasions. Track is well maintained, can get a little muddy closer to the lower falls

Nice walk with some lovely views of the two waterfalls. I agree with a previous poster, and would suggest going anti-clockwise so the falls are kept until the end.
