Twin Falls Circuit

Multiple Locations

Springbrook National Park is located on the McPherson Range near Springbrook and forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

Begin the Twin Falls four kilometre subtropical rainforest circuit from the Tallanbana picnic area or Canyon lookout in an anticlockwise direction. Within minutes reach a small bridge, flowing water and towering rock formations.

Descend further on the thin and winding track to the Twin Falls Circuit where you are greeted with two rushing waterfalls. See their force from both front and back vantages and continue on past ancient brush box (Lophostemon confertus), strangler figs and piccabeen palms nearby to Blackfellow Falls where you are likely to get damp passing through the spray.

Continue to incline the remainder of the walk up several stairs with rewarding mountain top views back over Springbrook National Park complete with a barbeque at the Tallanbana picnic area.

Danger: Sheer cliffs and waterfalls. One slip could be fatal-serious injury or death may result from walking near the edge. Keep to the track. Supervise children closely.

Full Itinerary

Twin Falls circuit, Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park has breathtaking lookouts, magnificent waterfalls, dense rainforest and ancient Antarctic beech trees. The park is part of Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area.

Start the Twin Falls circuit at the Tallanbana picnic area or at the Canyon lookout. Pass behind two waterfalls, through rock clefts and among palms and tree ferns. Signs along the way guide you through the different forest types.

Keep an eye out for the smooth, pink bark of brush box trees that line the track. Similar brush box in other parts of the world heritage area have been radio-carbon dated at 1500 years, making these trees the oldest ever carbon-dated on Australia's mainland!

Remember to allow enough time to take in the mountain views and get your fill of photos.
