Minyon Grass to Base of Minyon Falls

New South Wales

This walk is the shorter alternative to the Minyon Loop (4 - 5 hr). It follows the Minyon Loop track from the Minyon Grass picnic grounds down along Repentance Creek to the base of the falls. The last 100m of the walk (to get to the waterfall base and pool) is scrambling up large boulders. Be careful when it's wet as the rocks can be very slippery. The majority of this walk is of medium difficultly however the scramble at the end lifts the difficulty to hard.

Popular area, saw plenty of people and some kids doing the walk on a Saturday. Can be slippery in the later parts as you get near the waterfall.

Great views, and plenty of places to get in for a dip.

Took some couchsurfers here and we really enjoyed this walk. It was quite a hot day but we had plenty of shade so the walk wasn't overly difficult. Rock scrambling at the base of the falls was fun! Take a picnic and enjoy lunch under the majestic waterfall.

If you have mobility issues then you might have trouble with this one. It's quite steep and could be muddy after the rain.

The track was a bit muddy but worth it to see the base of the waterfall. In my opinion the 10 min scramble at the end is a bit too dangerous, especially when wet.

I use to do this walk as a kid with Mum, Dad and brother. Bought back my partner to show her how wonderful it is.
