Been here before, will come again. Love the place even if it is too cold to swim. The circuit walk always has some native wildlife to see.

Great falls and easy walk to see for anyone. Not far to drive from Atherton and combine drive with other Falls in area. Well worth seeing. Even if a rainy day the waterfalls are a doable activity in the area.

Looks more like man made place, so would not recommend this place. We spent 30 sec there and went back to car.

This waterfall is easily excessable, not far from the town centre with the information centre close by. There are tables and benches so suitable for picnics. Ideal family outing and you can soak your feet.

The Malanda Falls was very close to the Malanda Falls Visitor Centre. It took us a few feet to get there. I was impressed. Its waterfall was huge and majestic. Beautiful! Worthwhile to see!

This is worth stopping at as it's right next to the road. If the falls are not heavy the sound of the road kind of ruins the moment. So many better falls around to see that are away from the road. The best thing about...More

Have been here a few times so no surprises but we all love looking at waterfalls. Not worth a special trip but worth a visit if you are in the area. Enjoyable on a hot day.
