Haven't been here for over a decade, and was amazed at how popular it has become. Car parking space was at a premium so be prepared to walk before you even start your 'walk'. The rainforest itself is beautiful and even if you only go about 200 mtrs to the first little bridge, rockpool and waterfall it is lovely. Don't... More

A good walk and a bit wet under foot with the recent rains however the paths have been well developed so was still easy to do. The long walk down to the bottom was worth the effort and then up to the rock pools for a swim. Do your self a favor and do this. Very peaceful and relaxing and... More

We walked down past the falls and back up to the car park in one loop. You can cool down in the pool part-way along. It was a wonderful rain-forest experience and a great walk.

Escape the heat of the coast and take a short (or longer if you have more time and energy) into the magnificent rainforest walk that gently rises above the Baroon Pocket dam with magnificent look outs! the track is incredibly well maintained. Well worth the trip.

Kondalilla National Park is situated in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, about 10 -15 minutes from Maleny. Parking isn't great, as the car park is a bit small and can fill up quickly, but most people seem to find a park nearby anyway. The park has a few different walks that you can do, but the one most people will do... More

I absolutely love kondalilla Falls! The Falls itself isn't big and great but the waterhole and the jaw dropping views down the cliff is amazing. Swimming in the hole is refreshing after the massive walk down to it. Not suitable for people who struggle to walk long distance down a rugged track

Its an easy 1-2km walk downhill from the carpark to the rock-pool but.. 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!. I would advise against going there during the holidays, its too crowded and full of loudmouth ferals... More

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
