Unicorn Falls walking track offers a beautiful bushwalk through Mount Jerusalem National Park. Starting from the trailhead at Manns Road, you’ll pass through tall eucalypt forest and lush sub-tropical and temperate rainforest. Crossing creeks, the track will lead you to Unicorn Falls, a peaceful waterfall surrounded by trees.

The falls are a great spot to take a break and cool off in the shade. While you’re there, see if you can spot some of the park’s many threatened species, including Albert’s lyrebird and the red-legged pademelon. You may also see eastern yellow robins. When you’re ready, turn around and follow the track back to the trailhead.

Summer’s a great time to visit as the falls usually flow best in the warm, wet months. In winter the falls may not have as much water, and it can be dark and cold under the forest canopy.
