    Spectacular Views
    Visited on Friday 5th August. The drive is well worth it for the spectacular views when you get there, the viewing platform is amazing. If you feel energetic there are a couple walking track for the fit ones with a 3-4 hour return trip.

    Excellent viewing platform
    Drove to mining falls which is a highlight of the Nightcap National Park. The picnic facilities were very good. The walk to the spectacular viewing platform was well constructed and wheel chair accessible. Unfortunately due to lack of rain the falls were a mere trickle. Will have to return to see how spectacular it is.

    Magical
    This place is magical and visually spectacular. The hike through the forest is divine, I felt transported to another world. Towards the end of the hike, there is no path and you have to climb and traverse big rock boulders, so the hike becomes full body, it's not for the faint-hearted. But once over the rocks when you reach the bottom of the falls it feels like you could stay there for days, soaking up the beauty, expansive space and refreshing fresh mountain water. I'm not indigenous but when I was here I could feel the wonder of the location and immediately felt connected to what I would assume would be a special place for our first nations ancestors. Be prepared - bug spray, water, food and snacks. It's a big day out in nature, but your soul will be rejuvenated. Well worth it.

Even with heavy fog and rain, this view is breathtaking. Very easy stroll from the carpark to an accessible viewing platform.

When we visited Nightcap National Park today , the bush track down to the bottom of Minyon Falls was closed , due to hazardous conditions .. therefore we only were able to visit the Minyon Falls Lookout & Minyon Grass Trail Lookout

The panoramic view from Minyon Views Lookout , are so much more spectacular

Both lookouts have , picnic facilities ( no BBQ facilities ) , carparks & public toilets

The windy , skinny road to / from Minyon Falls was a hang on experience

Minyon falls is very easy to get to, I drove from Byron and took me only 40 mins. They have toilets at the top and the walk to the water fall viewing platform is only about 50 meters!. The falls are amazing. Must go and see

We visited from Byron Bay - about an hour and a half drive up. The road was a bit cut up and the last kilometre is dirt with a couple of serious wash outs on it, but passble in small 2 wheel drive if you take it slowly. Facilities limited to toilets and picnic tables - but all very recently constructed, well looked after and clean.
The lookout is well worth the drive and easily accessible. We could not do the walk to the bottom of the falls due to the trail being closed - I would have liked to get down there amongst those ancient palm forests to look back up.
We drove back via Bangalow and recommend it for an easy day trip.

Great facilities for spending time at these falls.
We came whilst ex-tropical cyclone Seth was petering out, hence, the falls were flowing at full speed! Made for some great videos & long exposure pics. Wow!!!
Decent size car park, nice toilet facilities & extremely well built viewing platform.
Definitely worth a visit especially straight after a few days of rain.
