We visited the Killen Falls on a beautiful spring day. The walk to the lookout is easy but the climb down to the actual swimming hole is very steep with only basic rock steps and in some places just rocks. You will need good walking...More

It was quite an easy walk from the car park to the viewing platform at the top of the falls. The walk down to the bottom of the falls was pretty tricky - definitely glad we all had our runners on! The watering hole was...More

This was a great short drive and the homes & views from the mountains are incredible however the falls itself was nothing spectacular. There were no toilets at this place and the walk isn't for small kids/toddlers. It wouldnt be a great place if it...More

Its a bit of a trek down through the trees to get there, but well worth it. Falls are fantastic, and water is refreshing for a swim. Also the drive into the park is very scenic.

A lovely find!! We were staying in Byron Bay and this fall is a 25 min drive (the drive itself was lovely, passing old towns and coffee plantations). There are about 8 parking spaces. Many people have commented on the steep walk down, however, we...More

A touch over an hours drive from the Gold Coast you will find this little gem. Not a long walk in but a bit tricky on the decent and would be very slippery after a rain. Can get behind the falls from the caves easily...More

Hadn’t been much rain recently when we visited so we were not sure how much of a fall there would be but we were pleasantly surprised by these beautiful falls. Magic how you can walk behind the falls in the cave as well. The trip...More

What a great spot this is. The water was so clean & refreshing to swim in & we loved the cave behind the waterfall & the rock boulders we sat on by the relaxing cascading water. I had to swim in my runners as it...More

Thankfully a local told us about these falls. We spend a drizzly day at this location. Even though it rained on and off we enjoyed the falls. The path to the falls was pretty rough and muddy on the day and myself with an impairment,...More

When you arrive at the little car park (parking is limited) there are two options, one takes you to a dam the other to the falls, worth having a look at both as it’s a very short walk. The falls is about a 5 minute...More
