Kondalilla Falls Circuit, Kondalilla National Park

Multiple Locations

Explore this beautiful walking track that leads from Kondalilla Falls down the escarpment into a lush rainforested valley then climbs up the ridge again to return.

From the Kondalilla Falls car park, walk 100-metres downhill (with steps) to a large grassed picnic area with barbecues, picnic tables and toilets. Laze over a picnic then set out for a scenic walk. Follow the Picnic Creek circuit, walking through rainforest and open forest to a cool rock pool at the top of the falls. Continue on the Kondalilla Falls circuit, descending into lush rainforest as you walk down to the valley for the best waterfall view at the base of the falls.

What goes down must come back up! As you climb the ridge, look for emergent bunya pines with their distinctive symmetrical dome shapes, dense stands of piccabeen palms and intriguing shapes of pink ash.
There are over 300 stairs on the Kondalilla Falls circuit so you need to be reasonably fit and allow enough time to enjoy this steep walk. Leave enough time to complete your walk in daylight hours. This walk is a Grade 3 track (formed track, may have short steep hills and many steps, some experience recommended).
