Getting there

Exit 79 on the Pacific Motorway. Follow Springbrook Road about 27 kms up the plateau. Turn left at a sign that says "Canyon lookout 0.2". Park at the Canyon lookout.



Route/Trail notes

From the Canyon lookout turn right and follow the path. The path is extremely well signed and marked. There are a few turnoffs for the 4km Twin Falls circuit, but stay right. It's virtually impossible to get lost. The first few kilometres head downhill past a few beautiful waterfalls. After while you lose altitude into the rainforest. A few switch backs downhill and you end up at the half way point, where all the creeks meet. Beautiful place to stop for lunch.

The walk back up hill isn't steep with lots of switch backs. At one stage near the top you get near another waterfall. There's a sign pointing to the Twin Falls circuit, but turn right and walk behind the waterfall. Best part of the trek! Follow the climb back up and walk along the ridge back to the car, checking out views all the way to Surfers Paradise.

A Waterfall lovers paradise.
It was fun to walk behind a couple of falls and with the recent rains, everything looked really nice. There were also a few extra little trickles of water here and there.
It was a bit muddy and slippery in places and there were a few trees down but the track was still easily passable.

Brilliant walk, amazing scenery.

Spectacular! The waterfalls were stunning, the walk is really enjoyable as the landscape is pretty diverse. Did it in 4 hours at an average pace and a few small stops. As other comments suggested we started down the right hand side of the lookout.

Amazing walk and after having a bit of rain 2 days before, some paths were quite slippery. It was an easy path to follow and the highlights of the walk, were definitely walking behind the 2 waterfalls. Fantastic and will do this walk again in the future, probably clockwise to change it up a bit. This walk only took us just under 4 hours in a very comfortable pace.

Simply stunning! So many waterfalls and gorgeous animals to see along the way. It did not seem like 17km, and I would rate it as easy - moderate, especially when starting the walk from the right path rather than the left path at Canyon Lookout as the walk uphill from this direction is very gradual and not at all steep.

Great walk, it was very wet and lots of leaches but the waterfalls were full and spectacular!

Beautiful waterfall circuit - plenty of great photo opportunities!

Not bad at all although I wouldn't call this a hard walk. Quite long but not hard
