We picked this location to check out the bushwalks at Nightcap. Having read lots about the spectacular walk to the falls we were not disappointed. The local knowledge also helped us choose other good walks. Signposting was tricky at times if not approaching from the popular roads, but we found our way eventually.

Protestor Falls are situated within the Western end of Nightcap National Park and is not accessible from the Minyon Falls area that is located at the South/ Eastern area of the park. It is a totally different rainforest environment, compared to the later if you have visited the here first. You could easily think you are in Far North Queensland... More

It was 1979, people were angry, people who didn’t want to lose something. The oft despised Greenies were out in force, a forest was in peril, 300 year old blackbox and brushbox trees were listed to be cut down and 300 protesters dug in for starters. A rally of 2,000 people eventually woke the government up and an impact study... More

Great amenities for a picnic/bbq. Walking track to Protester Falls in top condition. It's a short walk from car park to top of falls. Huge reward for very little effort. Note: keep an eye out for the numerous carpet pythons on access road in, especially early autumn.

Take the drive to Minyon Falls on the eastern edge of Nightcap from Byron or Mullum. An hour or two of teetering on the edge of "off the GPS" roads (that 2WDs will still cope with) looking out for Nightcap Oaks and listening out for Paradise Riflebirds and Albert's Lyrebirds will make you think seriously about moving here for good....

Been there last week and was amazed by the views, there's a beautiful waterfall called Mynons Fall. If you like bush walk, that's the perfect place to go. There's also beautiful spots for barbecues with an amazing lake view. Just be aware of the right entrance as I got lost and ended up in a banana farm at first :)

Nightcap National Park is divided into two sections, one featuring Terania Creek and Protesters falls and another featuring Minyon Falls. If you have 4 hours, then visit both, but if you dont and only have 2 hours, it is best to visit only Terania Creek and complete the walk to Protesters Falls (30 mins return). The area around Terania Creek... More
