Minyon Falls lookout has the best view in the area. On a clear day, you may be able to see all the way to the coast from the lookout platform, which overlooks not only the falls but also the valley below.
Enjoy the sounds of local wildlife, the peaceful atmosphere, and the spectacular natural surroundings as the cascades flow over Minyon Falls to a deep palm-shaded gorge about 100m below. The cliffs’ tops are forested with Australian eucalypts such as blackbutt and scribbly gum, and a lovely pool at the base of the falls is an ideal place to cool off and relax.
Minyon Falls is ideal for a quick stop, but if you want to stay longer, there is a picnic area with plenty of shady trees and picnic tables. There are also a few bushwalks that start from the picnic area, such as the Boggy Creek walk, which leads to Rummery Park campground, and the Minyon Falls walking track, which takes you down to the base of the falls.
And, while Minyon Falls has stunning vistas and beautiful scenery, it’s more than just a visual treat. It is also a special place for the Aboriginal community in the area.
