Amazing Walk

The road up to O'Reillys is terrible at the moment. There are a lot of single lanes that have not been there on our prevous visits so you need to take a lot of care getting there and getting down the mountain as well.

We left Brisbane at 6.45 and got there at 8.45. For a Winters day it was perfect weather for walking. Although it was sunny at O'Reillys we hardly saw the sun for the rest of the walk due to it mostly being in heavy rainforest.

There was rain a few days before we visited so the tracks were a bit boggy in some places but the result of the rain was that the waterfalls were running very nicely.

I would recommend very good footware as my runners didnt really cut it for such a long walk with creek crossings and rock hopping added in there.

The waterfalls were absolutly magnificent and worth all the effort to reach them. I would do this walk over and over again to see the changes.

At one stage the track took us away from the rushing water of the creek and into a wooded area and we stopped and soaked in the silence of the forest. It was magnificent.

The views from the track over to the coast was a little disappointing today as it was a bit hazy. I could imagine that they would be wonderful on the right day.

I have to say that I was a little worn out after the 18km trek but it was well worth the effort.

A lot of other posts have mentioned leechs but even though I had shorts on we didnt encounter even one on the whole trek.


Time for us to complete 6 hours.
