Indarri Falls, Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park

Lawn Hill, Burke Area

Indarri Falls, in Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park, is a scenic waterfall that separates the upper and middle gorges in Lawn Hill Gorge. Indarri Falls can be accessed by the 3.8 kilometre Indarri Falls walking track, one of two walking tracks that explore the western side of the camping area.

The Indarri Falls track meanders through the dry sandstone landscape to a vantage point overlooking the falls on the rim of the gorge. This loop track then returns via the hilltops and a steep descent down the ridge behind the camping area. At the falls, refresh in the cool water and watch purple-crowned fairy-wrens and crimson finches in the creek-side vegetation.

It is a moderate walk, with a steep descent, if walked in a clockwise direction. It is best walked in the early morning.
