Description

The Morans Falls track leaves the Lamington National Park Road 800 metres downhill from the Green Mountains information centre and O'Reilly's Guest House. Some parking is available at the track entrance.

The track descends 140 metres through a subtropical rainforest of booyongs, figs and brush box to Morans Falls Lookout where an excellent view of Morans Falls and Morans Creek gorge can be seen. Layers of ancient volcanic lava flows are also visible; the more resistant have formed small cliff-lines along the valley, and is best seen at the second lookout located across Morans Creek at the end of the track. Please keep to the track as short cuts create erosion.

A picnic area is located 400 metres further on at the top of the falls. This was the site of a bark hut, the first home of the O'Reilly brothers when they arrived on the mountain.

Lamington National Park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world.
