  • Brushbox Falls lookout is in a remote location, so please be well-prepared,and tell a family member or friend about your travel plans.

Brushbox Falls lookout can be reached via an easy walk along Palm Forest walking track from Sheepstation Creek campground, and is a great spot for families as well as larger groups of children.

Tall brushbox and dainty Christmas orchids are dotted along the mostly downhill walk, with strangler figs and Bangalow palms adding to the charming scenery.

Bring along your binoculars for birdwatching, as this World Heritage-listed park is teeming with birdlife. Keep a look out for green catbirds, paradise riflebirds, rose-crowned fruit-doves and wompoo fruit-doves.

Brushbox Falls is particularly impressive during the wet season in late summer, or after heavy rains at any time of year.
