The access road is unsealed but well graded and extremely well maintained - much better than other parks we have visited. We walked the 600m track to see the falls - but as others have reviewed, you can only really see a partial torrent to the left, and where the falls begin to the right. I think to truly appreciate...

We visited the falls on our way back for Bald Rock and after experiencing the Rock we were pleased this walk was very short, 600m. There wasn't too much water so it wasn't as spectacular as others have seen; still was nice to visit.

Boonoo Boonoo Falls were magical the day we arrived....flowing with flourish due to the rain from the previous day ..... I managed easily enough using a walking stick , a few stops on the way back due to the rise ..but still made it .....also went down the alternate path to the Rock Pools, they would be a wonderful respite...

Isn't it wonderful to go somewhere, just to check it out (in this case, on the way back from Bald Rock NP), only to find that you are more impressed with this than the main event? Boonoo Boonoo is literally spectacular.

Some of the sights along the drive into the falls are well worth a stop and the walk. The tracks near the falls are well-maintained (paved) and the facilities are good - picnic areas and barbecues. However, the lookout at the falls doesn't really let you see the falls - just where they tumble over the edge for that 200... More

We enjoyed a great visit climbing through the rocks, eating our BBQ lunch and swimming in the falls - very memorable! The scenery was magic.

Awesome rockpools and rapids tumble over a 200m cliff to river below. Some good rapids and swimming holes

The walk down was ok, safe & clean, I was just disappointed at the angle at which you view the falls. Obviously this was the safest place to build the lookout platform.

The 14Klm side trip down a good quality gravel road is well worth what is at the end - The multiple cascades are spectacular and there is some rock pools suitable for swimming - The track to the lookout is sealed and an easy grade for walking - The view down over the valley is worth the walk in itself...
