This was a great walk. Left at 0700hrs with some light showers in the area, as well as the clouds clinging to the mountain. The creek was flowing well and the rains had bought the rainforest to life. Was a steady walk and quite slippery in some places. spotted some nice spots lower in the circuit that i will be returning to to picnic with the family in better sunnier weather.

Combined with waterfall walk, a fairly easy walk with some steepish stairs and a walk across the creek at the bottom. There are rock pools and running water, a very enjoyable if somewhat short walk.

Another great visit to this very popular track.

We combined the two walks of Curtis Falls and Lower Creek, a total walking distance of 2.6km from the car park. Had to hold our noses a few times, as there are a couple of bat roosts!

Track appears to be open, though we saw a sign facing the wrong way on the way back warning not to go any further. The national parks site doesn't list this track as closed.

Nice walk. There is a section where you can spot bats high up in the trees.
