Continue on up the hill to the car park on the left just before the gate. The falls are close to the car park but, if you have the time, take the circuit walk because there is a better swimming pool further up with a sandy beach. The view from the falls in the late afternoon is magnificent.

 Beyond the gate the track leads on for another 6km. From here is one of the best walks in NQ to the highest point in the Lamb Range at Kahlpahlim Rock. The forest is beautiful with many large Kauri Pines. From the rock you can see Lake Morris and Cairns in the distance. Round trip walk from the car about 4hrs.
