Morans Falls track, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

Subtropical rainforest of booyongs, figs and brush box flank the track for the 140 metre stroll to the lookout over Morans Falls. Plummeting 80 metres to the valley floor, Morans Falls fluctuates between a thunderous roar after rain, to a gentle trickle in the drier months. The falls are slowly working through the softer rock beneath, causing rockfalls and reshaping the cliff face—changes that are barely visible in our lifetime.

Further along the track you can stop for a picnic at the top of the falls. Think back to a time when a bark hut stood here—the first mountain home of the O’Reilly brothers.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
