Granite Falls walking track is a 1km, grade 3 return hike, located in the Morton National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
Granite Falls walking track offers an easy amble through eucalypt-dominated bushland. Check out robust stringybark, red bloodwood and turpentine trees as you go, and brush up on the area’s history and geology with the track’s interpretive signs.
Your destination is Granite Falls lookout. This fenced viewing platform overhangs a dense green valley and offers scenic views. The 63m-high falls are quite impressive and the unusual granite rock face they trickle down is fascinating to observe. There’s space to enjoy an informal picnic while overlooking the falls.
Walking this track in spring delivers the added bonus of blooming wildflowers, including boronias, along the way.
