Description

Malanda Falls Rainforest Walk is located within the Malanda Falls Conservation Park on the Atherton Tablelands. Malanda Falls, on the North Johnstone River, tumbles over basalt rock formed by an ancient lava flow that spread from the Mount Hypipamee area 15 kilometres away.

Starting on the opposite side of the road to the car park, the 1.5 kilometre Rainforest circuit walk follows the North Johnstone River before turning back through the forest to its starting point. Look for platypus, fish and turtles from the viewing deck over the river, and learn some of the many tree species that make up the forest. Stay on the walking track and boardwalks at all times. Allow one hour walking time to complete this track of an easy grade.
