“Worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I first visited Kondalilla Falls some 30 years ago with friends. It was a typical hot, unbearably humid Summer's day in January, but we were young, so we hardly noticed the trek down to the rock pool and waterfall and back. This time, my knees and I, we noticed. But it was a sparkling Winter's day and the rock pool and waterfall were just as I remembered them - beautiful, serene, the perfect swimming spot. A great place to relax with a picnic lunch and while away the day listening to the birds. Until, of course, it's time to trek back up the hill to the car park. The huffing and puffing almost drowned out the birdsong. Nevertheless, highly recommended - a definite Sunshine Coast must do.

“A great walk with lots of stairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Due to the time of the year the falls didn't have much water but it still was very calming. The trees in the park were amazing. Some were enormous. Some of them must be very old.
The walk to the top of the falls takes just over an hour round trip. I found the stairs a bit wearing.

“Beautiful”

Wonderful rainforest walks, lovely big waterfall and swimming hole for those hot days. Longer walks too for keen bush walkers.

“One of the loveliest walks we did.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This is a terrific walk on the Sunshine Coast. We spent a week in the area doing a variety of 5-12 km walks, and this was about the best. The falls weren't too flowing, but the forest was just lovely and there were beautiful views from a range of lookouts.
