Curtis Falls Track, Tamborine National Park

Multiple Locations

Curtis Falls Track is located within Tamborine National Park, Joalah Section. The park protects remnants of Tamborine Mountain's plant communities and includes areas of rainforest with distinctive piccabeen palm groves, wet eucalypt forest dominated by tall flooded gums, open forest with bracken fern understorey and woodland. These plant communities provide essential wildlife habitat in a landscape almost entirely surrounded by urban and rural development. Basalt columns, cliffs, rocky outcrops and waterfalls are a lasting legacy of volcanic eruptions 23 million years ago.

Joalah is located at the headwaters of Cedar Creek and is accessible from both Eagle Heights Road and Dapsang Drive car park. Near the start of the 1.1 kilometre Curtis Falls track, are two large picnic areas surrounded by tall eucalypt forest. This enchanting walk begins in wet eucalypt forest beneath towering flooded gums. Notice a drop in temperature as the wet eucalypt forest merges into lush rainforest. Beautiful crows nest and staghorn ferns can be seen in the canopy above. View Cedar Creek tumble over Curtis Falls into the rock pool below. The rock pool and surrounding basalt rock face provide important glow-worm habitat. Allow 30 minutes to complete this walk of a moderate grade.
