Starting from the end of Minyon Grass Road, Repentance Creek, this walk takes you to the base of the Minyon Falls and back via the Minyon Loop Track, visiting Minyon Grass Lookout near the start. You’ll be stunned by the sheer size and power of the waterfall that is before your eyes. Standing 100 metres tall, the plunge waterfall cascades down the vertical rhyolite rock face to a scenic waterhole. Bring your swimmers and don’t miss out on the opportunity of cooling off in this exceptional scenery. You can also have a serene picnic by the water afterwards. As you make your way along the creek to the falls, you’ll be surrounded by Bangalow Palm trees that seem to be dominating the subtropical rainforest. Interesting fungi species such as the turkey tails and jelly mushrooms can be found in the area as well. Keep in mind that the last section before reaching the base of the falls involves rock hopping/scrambling. The waterfall is best viewed after decent rainfall, but that can also lead to more slippery footing and leeches. Grippy hiking shoes are recommended. Precise caution as there are steep drop-offs at parts of the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
