Queen Mary Falls Circuit is a 2km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Koreelah National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 40 mins to complete.

Summary

Stroll along the Queen Mary Falls circuit to the lookout giving views of Spring Creek plunging 40 metres over Queen Mary Falls. Continue along the track to descend from the eucalypt-covered ridge top into the rainforest gorge at the base of the falls. Pause to view the falls from creek level and feel the waterfall’s cool spray. Take care on the causeway as the surface can be slippery when wet. Never cross when water covers the causeway.

About the region

Koreelah is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 631 km north of Sydney. The park is part of the Scenic Rim Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance in the conservation of several species of threatened birds.

The main feature is the gorge just south west of the campsite. At the head of the gorge is a deep water hole surrounded by four metre cliffs that can be dived from. There are bigger waterfalls downstream but no access to the main gorge from the north without ropes. There is some algae in the water if there has not been recent rain.

There is a campsite signed west of White Swamp Road, roughly 10 km north of Old Koreelah (which is on the Mount Lindsay Highway). It has a compost toilet and some barbecues, although the grass and weeds are rather long since cattle were evicted about 1999.
