Morton National Park

Overview

Tucked away on West Rim walking track, The Grotto in Morton National Park is well worth a visit. After a short, steep climb, you’ll be rewarded with views of a crystal shower that cascades over a rocky outcrop.

Follow the gently undulating West Rim walking track through pristine eucalypts and lush rainforest, and take a short side track detour to reach The Grotto in Morton National Park. Located 2.3km from Fitzroy Falls lookout, and at the end of a steep, rocky stairway, you’ll be treated to the sight of water cascading over a rocky overhang down to moss-covered rocks below.

As you enjoy the tranquil surrounds keep your ears peeled for sounds of the birds and animals that live in this part of the park.
