Flat walk. More exciting places to visit in Sunny Coast.

Lovely short walk in a very beautiful spot.

Very short, fairly flat but quite muddy after all the recent rain. Powerful waterfall to see up close. Too cold for swimming in winter.

Lovely place to swim and/or eat. Water is cold so enjoy swimming if you dont mind that. Very popular for swimming. . Parking can be an issue. Even just coming here for a short stroll is lovely. I post photos of my hikes to instagram.com/spring_beans am based in the Sunshine Coast :)

A good spot to get out of the car to stretch the legs. Great spot for the kids to have a cool off as well.

Very easy flat short track virtually all sealed. It’s quite popular with people who stay for the day as it’s kids friendly and nice picnic areas, so parking spots fill quickly, resulting in parking along the road side and a short walk..

Went here around 11:30am on the 13th of May 2017 and it was just after some heavy rainfall. So the falls were absolutely gorgeous and was raining down lightly. This was a perfect small walk for any time of the year. In the summer time I will definitely be back again. If you're around the area after heavy rain fall or while it's lightly raining. You will not regret it. Just make sure you have some decent water resistant hiking boots so you can walk across the water and explore a bit more.

Needed to cool off after climbing at the Glass House Mountains. Great rock pools with a couple of swings, didn't want to leave!

My friends and i go to these falls a lot and we have since we were in school, it is very beautiful and the walk there is simply a few steps. Anyone could get to the falls.

Very easy walk, would be a nice area for a picnic.

Great for the kids to have a swim and muck about in the rock pools.

Close to Obi Obi river, easy walk with rock pool. Had to check it out when doing a couple walks in Hinterland. Good for splash in summer I think.

A short stroll along a very pretty creek. Swimming hole at the falls and a few picnic tables along the way.

Rataholic on 21 Apr, 2012

it's an amazing place great for a fresh water swim and a swing off the Tarzan rope but watch your children all times waterfall can flow heavy ... but it's a must put on your tick list to visit

Nice and pleasant. Good for a dip in summer.

Steven Pynor on 25 Jul, 2009

This was a nice easy walk along the creek. I would imagine it gets really busy in summer. Such a great place for a swim.
