Booloumba Falls walk, Conondale National Park

Multiple Locations

Conondale National Park, in the rugged Conondale Range, features lush rainforests, tall eucalypt forest, waterfalls, boulder-strewn creeks and spectacular scenery. The Booloumba Falls walk showcases the park's stunning surrounds and a wonderful variety of wildlife.

You'll be immersed in the natural beauty of this remarkable, sprawling expanse as you walk through tall open forest and discover Booloumba Creek's cascades, waterfalls and rock pools. Marvel at The Breadknife, an impressive rock formation that marks the junction of Peters and Booloumba creeks, and cool off in the refreshing mountain water with a swim at the base of the falls.

Allow two hours for this three kilometre return walk. The Booloumba Falls walk follows a well-defined track and requires average fitness levels. Follow the track to the junction of Peters and Booloumba creeks, where the Booloumba Gorge features a lookout over cascades, falls, rock pools and The Breadknife rock formation.

All park roads are gravel and at present suitable for high clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles only. Booloumba Creek Road includes several creek crossings.
