Erith Coal Mine Track

Morton National Park

This short, steep walk through woodland, heath and rainforest leads to a mine that was open from the 1860s to 1915. The metre thick coal seam was of poor quality and only used for goods engines. For safety reasons, fencing prevents entry to the mine. This walk can also be undertaken from the Erith Coal Mine car park off Echo Point Road.

Short but the historic mine site and information signs are very interesting. Once you reach the mine you can continue down the path to reach the base of the waterfall. Good photo opportunities.
