Very picturesque, easy access to the viewing platform for the main falls. Great place to visit and explore the granite rock platforms.

What a pretty and peaceful place to visit. Once you park your car and head down the track you begin to relax and soak up the atmosphere. There will be a choice down the track for either the pools or the falls. Choose the pools first and save the spectacular falls until last. Both options are pretty and are close... More

Unique and amazing well worth the drive. We decided to visit spur of the moment and are so glad we did. The falls were an amzing view and the pool's were so beautiful. It was an easy 600m walk down and back and the facilities were clean and well kept. Camping sites were available too which would be great for... More

Dirt road in to the park was nice and smooth and the falls walk and lookout was very scenic. Been here in summer and not a bad spot to swim. Didn't camp there but the campground was nice and clean.

This is a must see if you are in the area. The Rock pools, lookout to the falls and gorge are spectacular. Neither are very far to walk to.

Well worth the drive out to this spot. Walk out to the waterfall lookout to see spectacular scenery. Take your towel in the warmer months and enjoy a dip in the water. Toilets are basic but clean. We had a lovely picnic lunch using the tables and chairs.

Highly recommend. A succession of beautiful rapids and swimming holes culminating in the falls and spectacular views over the eastern slopes of the great divide.

Boonoo Boonoo Falls had quite a bit of water going over and down into the valley. The water hole was very full of cold water. Very picturesque. A rock wallaby came out to enjoy the view with us. Worth the drive from Tenterfield, including a trip down the road to Bald Rock on the same day. Picnic facilities and toilets... More

Loved camping here. It was freezing at night, even in December but it was lovely. If you're looking for something a bit out of the way , it's worth a trip. Quite accessible for a weekend away from Brisbane. Close to Bald Rock, which is a nice day trip involving some exercise. Not too far from Girraween, either- so you... More

It is a fairly long drive in over well maintained gravel roads, but the trip is worth it! Other users suggest this is a four wheel drive track which is grossly misleading; the road is well maintained gravel throughout. The falls are at the end of a bitumen clad, well graded walking track which might be suitable for a baby... More
