Platypus Pool and Stairway Falls is a 14.1km, grade 4, one way hike located in the Lamington National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 7 hrs to complete.
This is a walk through off track (largely) scramble, rock hop and hike. It is meant for late spring – early summer walking so you can keep cool by swimming whenever you want along the way.
From the look out, navigate down to a tributory into Canungra Creek and essentially rock hop up to Blue Pool and out. You hit a path at the end for a bit and then take a detour up a ridge which has a footpad and is flagged.
It is easy to navigate and loads of fun. I rate this moderate but I am an experienced hiker. I have seen some comments on other hiking pages about parts of this walk stating that it is difficult etc. so ensure you are well prepared and have good navigation skills.
The Kamarun lookout is in the Green Mountains section of Lamington National Park, 110km south of Brisbane. From the entrance travel 2.7km along Lamington National Park Road. Turn left into Kamarun Lookout Road and follow it for 850m to the lookout.
- Swimming gear. You will probably see some pythons and maybe a red belly black snake or two.
