Getting there

If you can, visit local information centre a couple kms from Canyon Lookout. I believe it was once the original school house.

This walk starts from either the Tallanbana picnic area or Canyon Lookout in Springbrook National Park. Parking can be limited at both locations.

Route/Trail notes

The track is easy to follow and can be completed in either direction. There are two junctions where the Warrie Circuit meets this circuit, one near Twin Falls and the other at the base of Blackfellow Falls, but both are well signposted.

Easy walk to a spectacular waterfall! Can even walk behind the falls.

Lovely quick walk with great views at the top and a nice waterfall to walk under at the bottom, cooling!
Did as part of the Warie circuit

4.5/5 stars, 1.5hrs return at relaxed pace. Similar to Purlingbrook, going clockwise (go to the left at the start of the trail) is better in my opinion. Going anticlockwise, it only takes perhaps 15min to reach the falls, which if you’re more keen on the swimming might be better, but in terms of a walk, I’d prefer walking longer to the falls and then shorter back to the carpark. Either way, you start off fairly close to the top of the falls. The entire walk has less elevation change than Purlingbrook but similar duration. That being said, this walk is considerably more enjoyable, there are a lot more interesting things to see along the walk than the Purlingbrook track; it similarly has plenty of rainforest, but also some passing of smaller waterfalls, passing through rock formations, etc., so a much more enjoyable walk. The temperature is very cool as well due to the shade. However, because the walk is quite nice, it is quite a popular walk, so going on a weekday might be nicer to beat the crowds. I've done this walk 1 time.

My first hike and still one of my favourites. This is the one I choose to bring new Hikers too. It's just lovely and an easy walk.

Amazing walk! Not too hard but hard enough to be interesting. Amazing views! Amazing Forrest! Excellent walk for wet weather conditions. Did take ponchos with us and were glad to have them.

Easy and beautiful walk! You will walk by 2 waterfalls. We started our walk by the canyon lookout and it was amazing!

Lovely walk. Just did the Twin Falls circuit today. Lots of water per all the falls due to the recent heavy rains, but a lovely sunny day to enjoy it.

Olwyn on 10 Apr, 2021

Awesome day. Easy walk. lovely waterfalls. Saw a huge Carpet Python at the start of the track and right beside the track. Also encountered a large blue spiny crayfish.

Fantastic! It was amazing walking under the waterfalls.

GentleStroll on 28 Feb, 2021

Beautiful walk! The falls were lovely and lots of water flowing. It was rainy on the day but swimming at the bottom was absolutely amazing!! Quite an easy track! I wasn't sure at the start where to continue following the trail or turn around. It appears the easier walk is to turn around once you get to the falls but I continued on and all up was around 5 km and took me two hours even with a swimming break and lunch.

My new favourite walk in Gold Coast Hinterland!! We went just after a lot of rain and it was INCREDIBLE. Absolutely loved it :)

Great walk!!

Bexs on 29 Dec, 2020

Nice easy walk with great views of the falls as you go around. Very busy at the moment but a great walk to do with Purling Brook.

Chewie on 27 Dec, 2020

We went during a time when Springbrook was receiving a lot of rain fortunately it didn’t rain the day we went but the view was spectacular if we went to that waterfall any other time that wasn’t in the wet season it wouldn’t have been that beautiful.
