Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an insane waterfall lots of little spots to stop and admire along the way! There are leeches so I would beware and bring along some long socks. The hike to the falls is great, I’d probably say leave the kids and oldies at home as it can get a little sketchy on some parts especially if you go after it rains

Henrietta Creek camp ground is an ideal base to explore some of the best walking tracks and waterfalls in the southern section of the Wooroonooran National Park. It’s also a great place to spend a night camping in the rainforest. Travelling East the Henrietta Creek camp ground is 25 km from Millaa Millaa. If you’re travelling West from Innisfail, the camp ground is 32 km from the Palmerston Highway - Bruce Highway turn-off.
The Nandroya Falls walking circuit starts 200 metres past the Henrietta Creek foot-bridge some 50 metres from the camp ground. After a short distance and a small creek crossing, the track divides with the left trail signposted as 1.7 km to Nandroya Falls.
There are massive Fig trees and huge buttressed rainforest giants such as Satin Ash and King Ferns that provide a luxuriate cover of shade.
Douglas Creek tumbles over a series of three falls, the first falls pouring into a huge semicircular basaltic amphitheatre of fractured lava formations and dark cliffs covered in verdant moss.
This is a place to spend some time.
Be advised, there is no mobile coverage, no toilets and no rubbish bins, the March flies require repellant and leeches inhabit the foliage near the water.
Wait-a-While vines are not a problem if you remain on the track. There is limited suitable ground and shade at the waterfalls to throw down a rug for a picnic. Take a towel as the dark rocks can be fiercely hot. To take full advantage of this memorable experience, allow at least 2.5 hours.

Remote falls off the Palmerston Highway. Quite a precarious path which was quite slippery and dangerous in areas. Silver falls and Nandroya falls were worth the walk

Nice walk, best done early morning. Recommended to take insect repellent as march flies are notorious and do sting. I had terrible reactions and was covered in inflamed, itchy bites for weeks. Other than that I really enjoyed the walk.

this involves a long trek, but well worth it. You will cross couple of streams and beware they are infested with leeches. I had to pluck out thirty leeches off my girls' legs... yes they were counting it to see who was the sweetest. But they enjoyed every bit of the trek. The waterfall is just amazing.
There is a crystal clean creek to dip after the long walk back too.

After 4 years in FNQ and endless waterfall chasing Nandroya are officially my favourite. Best of all is the remote location in the middle of Wooroonooran NP where you are alone with nature away from tourists. For only a couple of kms of walking through pristine tropical rainforest the rewards are bountiful.

We had the entire hike and waterfall to ourselves. The short trails is approximately 3km each way. You'll cross over streams and hike through lush rainforest. Sure footing and the ability to climb and descend narrow stairs is a must. But if able, this is the best thing we hit on the waterfall circuit.

The 4km long distance track is not recommended for solo walk, especially during rainy day, in case injury or snake bite happens. Be aware of stinging tree, which is possibly unknown for majority of oversea tourists and can cause a lot of pain. There is a warning sign at the entrance though.
However, I would recommend the short 2km easy walk. You are still able to appreciate other water falls at the end if you do a short approximately 500 meters walk along the 4km long walk and return by the short one.

We headed up early & found the car park easily. We headed into the rainforest which was beautiful! There are two tracks one 1.7kms & another 4kms which both lead to the falls! We took the smaller one as on that one you also come to the smaller Silver Falls! This is a gorgeous little falls with a pool you can have a dip in! We then headed onto Nandroya! It was breathtaking! A huge falls with a massive swim hole. We had the place to ourselves which was amazing! The whole area is breathtaking! We got some amazing pictures! The water was perfect! The hike was good also not too hard we just took out time & enjoyed the hike! Def worth the drive!

Was such a nice easy walk. The waterfalls on the way were beautiful then you come across Nandroya Falls itself. It really is stunning. My only regret was not having my bathers...do not forget them..the water is beautiful. You just need to be aware of the turn into Henrietta Creek campgrounds...it comes up fairly quickly. The walk was definitely worth it but next time I’ll do the longer hike as there is 2 distances to choose from. Do not forget your insect repellent, you will need it to stop the March flies. A very easy, well kept path well worth the time...
