Take a leisurely stroll through changing forests to the top, and then the base, of spectacular Queen Mary Falls.
From the Queen Mary Falls picnic area, head along a fragrant eucalypt-topped ridgeline to the lush, rainforested gorge.
At the lookout, watch Spring Creek plunge 40 metres over the falls to the valley floor. Marvel at the rainbows created by the waterfall’s sheer mist, and watch as the creek continues its twisting journey along the valley, to join the Condamine River’s upper reaches.
Continue along the track to the valley floor and cool off in the waterfall’s misty spray—perfect on a hot summer’s day.
Park Rangers suggest walking the circuit in a clockwise direction as it is easier on the legs! Take care on the causeway as the surface can become slippery when wet. Do not attempt to cross when in flood or if water covers the causeway.
