This is a relatively short walk but it’s just so beautiful. There always seems to be a bunch of folk at the end enjoying the waterfalls area.

Short walk from car park to river and falls. Family enjoyed sitting on rocks and swimming in water holes. Watched older children swinging from rope from the bank and dropping into river. Plenty of shade. Wet rocks quite slippery so care is needed.

Stopped off for a swim and was not disappointed, absolutely gorgeous water holes. Kids went on rope swings which I would not recommend as my daughter fell off and nearly crashed into rocks. I would just stick to swimming in the water holes. Great place...More

Just outside of the quant town of Maleny is the stunning Gardener’s falls. This is a great spot for swimming (for all ages). Lovely clear clean waters, with an area full of wildlife. We could hear frogs croaking as we made the short 300m walk...More

Hi, not 100% sure but you could go on the Translink page and put in your start and end destinations and see if there is any buses. Also Kangaroo bus line is pretty big here they might have a bus that does the route.
