Crows Nest Falls via Kauyoo Loop (including The Cascades, Kauyoo Pool and Bottlebrush Pool)
Bottkebrush Pool is the ideal place to enjoy a swim and relax. The river she-oaks and bottlebrush trees here provide shade and habitat for a variety of wildlife. Keep an eye out for brush-tailed rock wallabies, as they move quiety around the surounding granite hills and boudlers. Take care on the steps leading down to the creek, as they can be slippery when wet.
A sandy beach allows easy access to the normally shallow water at Kauyoo Pool.
Steep crevices and slippery rocks lead to the Cascades, where you can hear the ‘tock tock’ calls of striped marsh frogs echoing around the boulders in summer. Watch your step, especially if the creek is flowing. This is another good spot to sit quietly and watch for rock-wallabies.
Turn off the New England Highway at the police station at Crows Nest (56 km north of Toowoomba) and take the sealed road 6 km to the park.
Caution: after heavy rain, creek crossings may be flooded.
Take a creek-side walk to waterholes and to lookouts with spectacular views.
Tracks lead from the picnic area and follow the steep-sided gorge in the upper reaches of Crows Nest Creek to a lookout overlooking Crows Nest Falls. Continue to Koonin Lookout for an impressive view over a deeper gorge known locally as the Valley of Diamonds.
Explore around the creek, but be careful.Rocks and stepping-stones can be slippery, expecially after rain. Supervise children closely.
Camping fees apply.
