Boonoo Boonoo Falls walking track offers a short easy walk from Falls picnic area along the southern side of Boonoo Boonoo Gorge. Go for a wander while the barbecue lunch is being cooked, or walk your food off afterwards. Take your time along this trail to notice the various wildlife habitats and plant communities such as rainforest, dry eucalypt forest and grassy woodland. Can you recognise the flowers of the boronia, banksia and grevillea that add their colours to this bushland? Keep an eye out too for the threatened brush-tailed rock wallaby that makes its home in this granite landscape.

The grand finale of this track is the viewing platform that overlooks the fabulous Boonoo Boonoo Falls where, legend has it, Banjo Patterson proposed to his sweetheart Alice Walker. Over the sound of the pounding waterfall, Banjo was relieved to hear, or at least lip-read, an unmistakable ‘yes’.
