Plunging over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, Big Millstream Falls is reputedly the widest single-drop waterfall in Australia. A walking track leads to a viewing area over the falls. Here, in the rain shadow of the Great Dividing Range, the dry, open woodland vegetation is dominated by eucalypts.
A separate entrance to the park leads to Little Millstream Falls. View these beautiful falls from just near the car park or take the steep and narrow track to their base.
The park has a rich World War II history. Step back in time to the early 1940s, when the Tablelands were dotted with training areas for up to 100,000 Australian troops. You can follow the World War II heritage walk and see the remains of the camp sites that were constructed for the Battalions of the 7th and 9th Divisions between 1943 and 1945. See the remains of tent sites, corduroy roads, training and parade grounds, trenches and other reminders of the time spent here.
