Then another 2-3kms if you want to go to the base of the waterfall and back up again, its quite steep so If its summer be prepared to sweat.. allot!.

This place is deep in the rain-forest and the trail is a mix of ups and highs. The drive to Maleny from Brisbane is really scenic and beautiful and its the whole experience that makes this place worth visiting.

Expecting the crystal clear water of mountain springs we were disappointed but not surprised to find people swimming in brackish water. it did not look appealing. The walk is a good but nice forest walk from the car park. take a drink and camera. We did see a brown snake so do take care and a stick to defend yourself... More

We chose to do a the full circuit walk on a day when it was raining. This was a wonderful experience, even though we did get quite wet!! The weather in summer is so warm though that we not at all uncomfortable. The walk begins at the top of the falls and the first stop is the large rock pool.... More

Easy or hard - this caters for all walkers. Bring a packed lunch - hide it from the Goannas - and enjoy the day :)

Magic spot, though on a very warm day, be advised that the well kept track and steps are quite steep in places, so take some water and decent footwear is probably a good idea, though I did it in sandals! The walk down to the water hole is lovely, with plenty of birdlife to be seen but more normally heard... More

get away from the hot sand and warm water at the beach and freshen up above the humidity of the coast. great place to really refresh yourself and the water is just perfect.

It was a very hot day, and the falls weren't really running due to the drought, but what a lovely walk! The paths, and stairs to the swimming hole are well kept and safe. There was plenty of parking and clean toilets near the car park. The walk to the swimming hole is probably the quickest and easiest (about 1.2... More
