Windin Falls Tail

Wonderful walk to the top of the epic Windin Falls. Approximately 90mins each way from the car park. 11kms return.
Access is via Gourka Road, which is off Topaz Road, out from Malanda. You will see signs to both Windin Falls and Battle-Frere Western Approach. Head to the left, following Windin Falls signage.

The track is pretty easy, a couple of inclines but not too steep. One steep section, not very long, when you are approaching the creek/falls.
Rainforest landscape. Be aware of leeches.

This was a bloody fantastic walk with a stunning valley view. Highly recommend.
