Route/Trail notes

A detailed description of the walk!

Start at the board walk across the rainforest floor (watch out for falling palm fronds, they come from a long way up!). The board walk is aprox 1/3rd of the way. The track continues on over Terrania creek with a foot bridge then over low tree roots and rocks fashioned into steps following the creek up to the falls. When at the falls today it felt like a natural airconditioner. It is requested at the start of the walk not to swim in the creek or at the falls.
