Mother Nature truly shines on The Falls walk, which starts halfway through the Rainforest loop at Minnamurra Rainforest Centre.

Amble along the elevated walkway and paved track, taking in the trickling streams, moss-covered rocks and feathered ferns beneath you. Soak up the breathtaking views over the rainforest canopy and canyon and take your time at the viewing platforms at the lower and upper Minnamurra Falls.

There are steep sections along the way, but it’s easy to find a seat and catch your breath in idyllic surroundings. You’ll likely see butterflies, animals and birds in the trees and leaf litter and, if you’re lucky, maybe even a lyrebird showing off his tail.
