Hard track
Starting from the car park on Tallebudgera Creek Road, Tallebudgera Valley, this walk takes you to the car park of Goomoolahra(Bilbrough) Falls and back via The Cream Track. Crossing Tallebudgera Creek multiple times along the way, the track explores a dense rainforest and goes through some private property as well. Enjoy the refreshing scenery as you hike along the creek and look for some wildlife hiding in the dense vegetation. When you make it to the car park near Goomoolahra, you can take your time and go see the amazing views from atop the waterfall, have a picnic in the recreation area, or go to the cafe nearby to refuel. Keep in mind that you’ll be needing a permit to pass through the private property, but it’s easy to obtain(online) and free of charge. Grippy shoes and hiking poles are recommended. Don’t schedule the walk after/during heavy rainfall as the clay hills become extremely slippery when wet. You can make this a one-way trip to avoid going back down the steep hills, but you’ll be missing out on a cool dip in the creek after a challenging hike. 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.
