Despite popular advice from the band TLC suggesting that you do not go chasing waterfalls, we strongly disagree! In Queensland, we are blessed with an abundance of breathtaking waterfalls throughout the State, so why not go chasing them? If you are an outdoors lover, itching to strap on your walking shoes and explore, here are five spectacular waterfalls to visit on your next adventure!
Have you ever heard of the beautiful infinity pools tucked away in Wooroonooran National Park? If you are an outdoors fanatic who does not mind a hike, then add Windin Falls to your bucket list. The trail to Windin Falls is a 20-minute drive from Malanda, from there it’s about a 4.5km hike to the beautiful falls. It’s worth the walk in our opinion!
Wallaman Falls is Australia’s highest permanent drop waterfall, at 268m. Find Wallaman Falls in Girringun National Park, west of Ingham. To get an aerial view, there are two lookouts at the top of the falls, but we would also recommend checking out the waterfall from the bottom so that you can get a real sense of its height!
Tucked away in the Blackall Range are the spectacular Kondalilla Falls. The falls are located just 2km north of the charming town of Montville, and are definitely worth a visit. The waterfall drops 90m down into the rainforest, into a beautiful swimming hole that is lovely for a dip on a hot summer day.
Morans Falls in the Lamington National Park is a must-visit in our books! The walk to the lookout is an easy 140m trek and offers stunning views of the 80m drop to the valley floor.
Queen Mary Falls
Two hours south-west of Brisbane, in Killarney, are the phenomenal Queen Mary Falls. The walk to the base of the waterfall is only 2km, through Main Range National Park. It is also a short walk from the carpark to a lookout at the top of the falls, where you get uninterrupted views stretching out to Condamine River.
