A picturesque picnic spot, just off Oxley Highway, makes Tia Falls lookout and picnic area an ideal stop over on a long drive. Located on the south western edge of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, it’s a great introduction to the rugged wilderness of the gorge country.

Check out the beautiful scenic view from Tia Falls lookout. The kids will love the waterfall, especially after big rains, which is when you might see rainbows. Unroll the picnic blanket or spark up the barbecue for a lunch under the trees. If you feel like stretching your legs, there are plenty of options to suit all the family, including the easy Tia Falls walk, which offers a closer view of the falls, or the longer Tiara walking track.
