Moderate track
Starting from the Booloumba Falls Carpark, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the Booloumba Falls and back via the Conondale Range Great Walk track, exploring the lush rainforest along the creek. After you spend some time taking in the views at the lookout, head down the steps and get to the base of the waterfall. Dip in the cool mountain water and enjoy the scenery from another angle. Check out “The Breadknife” as well, a rock formation at the confluence with an interesting shape to it. Always check the water before going in. Keep an eye out for snakes along 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.
