Wowzers! What an awesome waterfall. Was too hot on the day we were there and we didn't have time to do the walk but I would definitely like to come back and do that. The view from the lookout at the top was amazing and watching the water fall that distance was mesmerizing.

No problems driving up the road. Watch out for cows though, there were heaps walking unfenced near the road the day we went.

The Wallaman Falls are truly spectacular, its a long drive and possibly a biot nerve wracking for those who do not like driving up mountains, however the Falls are so beautiful and majestic they´re worth the journey

Very difficult climb but oh so worth it
abr de 2021 • Família
Wallaman falls hike is classed as moderate but throw in some heat and humidity and it was a little strenuous. I found out that I wasn't moderately fit after all! Have lots of rests if you aren't super fit but honestly it is 100% worth it.

I wish I had have spent more time at the bottom but was a little tricky with small kids as it was quite soggy and slippery. Kids made it up the walk with little to no problems and put me to shame!

Hidden gem

Wallaman Falls can be observed from viepoint close to the parking lot. Waterfall itself is accessible thru 2.5 km long hike with moderate difficulty.
Our group was lucky enough to have dry season, so we jumped over several rocks to reach the deep pool and swum there, even directly below the waterfall. It was fantastic!!!

This is absolutely one of my all time favorite places in Tropical North Queensland. It is tranquil and the scenery is simply stunning. The sounds from the water-fall will immerse you in complete serenity. A great day trip or bring your camping gear!

Well worth the walk in (and out!!)
ago de 2020
Do not forget to take a bottle of water with you!
It's a single lane road for the most part of the windy road up to the top. Do not be that one idiot who tries to tow their campervan up - you will annoy everyone behind you and find yourself on a couple of precarious hair pin bends. The drive up is pretty special if you like winding roads.
This is a beautiful and long walk in and definitely not a walk out for the faint of heart. The track at the top is paved and has simple handrails, but don't be fooled, it is a long walk down and a very long walk back up. There are stopping points and a few benches along the way so if you're up for it, it's definitely well worth it once you get down to the bottom.
The signs at the bottom do not lie! The rocks toward the water are very slippery. I was wearing shoes designed for walking/ambling on wet rocks and I still slipped in a few places. If you are wearing appropriate footwear and fit/able, then the climb over the rocks to the waters edge is well worth the spray from the waterfall - but do err on the side of caution.
A truly spectacular destination, no matter where you start or stop on the walk to the bottom. Views of the fall peak through branches on the walk up/down and the cooling effects of the spray from even the barriered stand point at the bottom make it worth the while.
Truly a spectacular rock and water formation!

Highest Waterfall in Australia

I had been champing at the bit to visit for years and finally camped for a night at Wallaman Falls and got up earlyish the next morning and did the 3.2km return trek to the bottom of the falls and back. Highlights of my experience:

-The drive in from Ingham (50km) is an adventure in itself. Heading in you are stopped by cattle on the road who are chilled and not so keen on moving and the last 15kms or so is a snaky uphill drive where you pass cassowary signs and dense rainforest. The road is diverse starting with open farmland, to bushland and then to the tropical rainforests of Girringun National Park as you get higher up

-The campsite was surprisingly large and well equipped with two large camping area, toilets (non-flush kind), tap with water, BBQ area and a basic shower. The night I visited it was busy with lots of families with kids, but the noise ceased fairly early and it was heaven to sit by the tent with a glass of red and gaze at the stars listening to music

-The falls themselves are something to behold. Wallaman is the largest single drop waterfall in Australia at 268m and you get a perfect view from the top at the main lookout which is about 200m drive from the campground.

-The walk down to the falls and back (called the “Jinda Walk”) is a must do. It is a steep 3.2km walk and coming up is obviously harder. The walk is beautiful and takes you through some magnificent rainforest with diverse plant life (this is some of the oldest Gondwana rainforest on Earth). At the end there is some rock hopping involved to get to the plunge pool where you can swim (which I did). The water is invigorating and the spray hits you before you even get in. I planned to swim right up to the falls but changed my mind as the water is too strong. At the top there is a tap with water which says it should be treated but I was so thirsty I drank it and it tasted like normal water and I had no issues. I forgot water and drank some water from the pool at the falls, and it was amazing, like fresh spring water. I had the falls to myself for most of the time as I left early, but heading back up to the top I was passing a lot of people. So definitely go early.

My visit to Wallaman Falls was a magical experience and one I won’t forget. As I think of it I think it would be amazing to take a helicopter ride over the falls but then the noise would create disturbances to the natural tranquillity (even the sound of drones is annoying). Maybe once a month they could offer one, I think it would be amazing.

Breathtaking to say the least.

A hidden gem nestled in the rainforest, approximately 40 mins drive from the township of Ingham. It is absolutely worth the drive, the view is sensational. To walk to the bottom of the falls, you require medium fitness, good footwear and lots of water. Such a wonderful experience and worth every moment.

It’s a long road in with many bends but we felt it was worth it.
The falls are the longest single drop falls in Australia. You don’t get close to them but there is a good viewing platform.
For those who want a hike, there is an apparently quite difficult and steep hike which would take a few hours.

10th Highest single drop waterfall in the world
ago de 2020
At 268mtrs single drop this ranks up as number 1 in Australia and number 10 in the world.
Yes its a long way short of Yosemite or Angel but still is a wonderful sight even in a dry August.
I am looking forward to coming back up here around March after a big wet season!!!!!!
The drive out from Ingham through the Cane fields and up through the mountains is also rather special.
This is a must see if you are in the area.
The viewing platforms at various levels are really good. To come, see and take some photos you only need an hour BUT if you want to go down the track and stairs to the bottom you would likely need half a day or more.
We did not venture down to the bottom as the climb back up would be rather difficult but for younger fitter types it would be well worth the effort.
If you had all day you could take it in stages with rest stops - maybe next time??
