Getting there:

Head for Mapleton and turn into Obi Obi Road and then turn right into Delicia Road. Follow this for 5.5km, the last part of which is gravel road, and you will see a small cut in to park on your right (signposted). This is also an access point for the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk.

Route/Trail notes:

Walk through the gate and follow the track, which is overgrown in places, down to Gheerulla Creek. Just before the creek crosses the track, turn right up the creek bed 100m to the falls (signposted) and return by the same route.

Although I did not a dip in the rock pool at the foot of the falls, I was assured by a local I met that you could.


Easy walk, little muddy from the rain. Great short walk and waterfall was spectacular after the rain.

Nice early Sat morning walk. Fairly quite and relaxing. Not much water as such being a dry wet season so far still nice trickle to enjoy.

The day's objective was to find the shortest route into the falls, which took me till 4pm! Part was that I could not find the entrance and secondly, there were a couple of other walks I did that I was not aware of. Mission accomplished.
