Description

This is an excellent track not far from the city. On the easier side of moderate, this trail is great for the whole family. On a nice weekend day this track can get quite crowded, so arrive early! UNESCO World Heritage–listed Gondwana Rainforests in the South East region of Queensland, Australia.

Fairly easy walk, briefly interrupted by a chunky carpet python crossing the trail! Lovely view of falls at the end

Hard enough to be good exercise but no so hard as to exhaust.

Great trail, connecting route from falls lookout to balancing rock was a 4wd track which fed to the reverse entry to the Wishing Tree and Micks Ladder, good fun walk

half of the trip was blocked off and totally closed, the other bit just brings you to the top of the waterfall but cannot go further without rock climbing gear

Wow! What an amazing view. Great place for a sunset. Half of the walk is paved. I’d rate this as easy.

Nice easy track. Ascent approx 225m. The drive can be tricky. Windy roads but worth the trip to enjoy a crisp morning hike.

What a drive up! Amazing, and totally worth it for the awesome walk down to the falls, fantastic views. Crowded but too be expected on a weekend. Would love to do a night up there and knock a few walks out over two days instead of the drive multiple times, beautiful but crazy steep and one lanes a lot.

A great well kept trail amongst beautiful rainforest. The lookouts along the way offer stunning views. The track is heavily shaded most of the way so bring a warm layer.

Easy hike and really pretty view of the valley if you follow it around to the other side from the waterfall viewing platform. My children (10, 9 and 5) did it easily and enjoyed it

Very easy walk. Still some steps along the way. This track is good if you want bird photos. When you park at O’Reillys, walk to the bottom of the car park to start the trail. Go early to avoid the crowds but watch for wallabies when driving up. Better to go after some good rain but the waterfall is still flowing.
