Full Itinerary

Kondalilla Falls Circuit

Follow the Picnic Creek circuit down the escarpment, past rock pools and a lookout with views of Kondalilla Falls. Walk through rainforest to the base of the waterfall and continue back up the ridge. Look for emergent bunya pines with their distinctive symmetrical dome shapes, dense stands of piccabeen palms and intriguing shapes of pink ash, Alphitonia petriei.

What goes down must come back up! There are over 100 stairs on the Kondalilla Falls circuit so you need to be reasonably fit. Always allow enough time to finish your walk in daylight hours.
