The Incredible Wallaman Falls


Just two hours north west of Townsville - you’ll find Australia’s highest permanent single drop waterfall.

The beautiful and stunning natural wonder is hidden amongst the rainforest lined gullies of Girringun National Park.

From the main lookout you can watch as Stony Creek plunges all of 268 metres in a spectacular single-drop - often rainbow-tinged cloud of mist below.

Come for the waterfall, stay for the bushwalks. There are two great bushwalks you can take - the Banggurru and Djyinda tracks. The latter of those will take you from the lookout right down to the base of the falls on a 3.2kilometre round-trip.

It’s not recommended to swim in the pools at the waterfall’s base as the rocks are incredibly slippery, however there are refreshing swimming holes to cool off in on your way back towards the campground on Wallaman Falls Road.

The best part? The only cost you’ll pay is the fuel you use to get here!

Just another fantastic free attraction in North Queensland.
