Boonoo Boonoo Falls

A short easy walk from Falls picnic area along the southern side of Boonoo Boonoo Gorge to the viewing platform where you have great views of the 210m waterfall.

Legend has it, Banjo Patterson proposed to his sweetheart Alice Walker. Over the sound of the pounding waterfall, Banjo was relieved to hear, or at least lip-read, an unmistakable ‘yes’!

1.9 km one-way

Cockatoo Walk

A circuit that takes you from Morgan's Gully Picnic Area to Cypress Pine Camping Area. May be walked as a circuit, but much nicer to walk along the creek and return through the same route.

River Track

Using the park’s fire trail system, the Boonoo Boonoo River Walk connects Cypress Pine Campground to the Boonoo Boonoo Falls picnic area, offering excellent swimming, hiking and picnicking opportunities.

In summer, what better place to relax than by a river! The Boonoo Boonoo River Walk, can be accessed via several places along Falls Road. Spring is a great time to experience this walk, as the park is a haven for wildflowers, including a variety of wattles, pea flowers and rock orchids.

The track leads you through dry eucalypt forest and vegetation in the riparian zone – the interface between the land and the waterway – a little way back from the river. Make the most of the two river visits by having a dip, a swim, or, at the very least, by splashing someone in your group.

If you’ve approached the river quietly, you may be lucky enough to spot a platypus. Around sunrise and sunset, wallabies and kangaroos might be seen grazing close by or drinking at the river.
