Description

Gudda Gumoo (Rainbow Waters) track(s) are located in the Blackdown Tableland National Park. Rising abruptly above the surrounding dry plains, Blackdown Tableland protects spectacular sandstone scenery at the north-eastern edge of the Central Queensland sandstone belt. This is the traditional home of the Ghungalu people, who have visited this place for thousands of years and left behind rock art, vivid reminders of their special culture.

The park supports diverse plant communities including heathlands, dry eucalypt forests and moist pockets of ferns, mosses and orchids. Being elevated, the tableland is often cooler and moister than nearby plains. Its isolation means plants and animals that are found nowhere else thrive here.

Gudda Gummoo (Rainbow Waters) encompasses two walks: the 3.6 kilometre return walk to the Gudda Gummoo lookout, at which point you can choose to walk on another 400 metres to complete the four kilometre return (including the lookout 3.6 kilometre section) Gudd Gumoo gorge walk which continues on from the lookout walk.

Moderate fitness is required for the this walk. It involves short, steep slopes, some stairs and loose surfaces. Allow 1.5 hours for the Lookout return walk (or 2 hours for the gorge return walk).

A higher level fitness is required to continue on 400 metres return to complete the gorge walk (four kilometres in total). It involves short steep slopes, 240 stairs leading to the base of the waterfall and loose surfaces. This walk is of a difficult grade. Allow two hours to complete the entire gorge walk (including the Lookout section).
