Kondalilla Falls Circuit is a 4.7km, grade 3 Return hike located in Kondalilla National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.


This beautiful walking trail takes you from the top of Kondalilla Falls, past rock pools and stunning views, down the escarpment to a picnic area. At the base of the falls you’ll find bunya pines, piccabeen palms and patches of lush rainforest. Locals love taking a dip at Kondalilla Falls so if it’s a warm day be sure to pack your swimming costume.

About the region

Kondalilla is a national park in the Blackall Range of South East Queensland, Australia, 91 km north of Brisbane. William Skene founded this area on his property while searching for lost cattle. He named it Bon Accord before giving it to the Queensland Government who, during the fifties, renamed it Kondalilla which is an Aboriginal word for running water. The area was first officially protected in 1906 as a recreational area, becoming a national park in 1945.

Access is easiest by road from Flaxton, east of the park. There is a large picnic area where there are toilet facilities (non potable water). There are two tracks which lead to the upper falls swimming hole. A longer circuit track will take you to the bottom pool which is not suitable for swimming. Allow at least two hours for the circuit trip, which in some places is close to the cliff edge and is not fenced.

Camping in the park is not permitted.
