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.
