Kanangra Waterfall walk takes visitors along an exposed spine of ancient rocks and past views of Kanangra Deep, Kanangra Walls and Thurat Spires. From the Kanangra Walls carpark, follow the lookout walk before diverging off on to Waterfall walk's path.
In the depths of the gorge, you may be able to spot one of the country’s few native deciduous trees, the Australian red cedar – it has new red growth in late spring. If you time your walk for either early in the morning or late afternoon, you’ll also be rewarded by the sight of many small birds, such as the flame robin, which inhabit the heath and forest.
