Wallaman Falls

Wallaman Falls

Funny how some of the best tourist attractions are rarely visited by locals.

Enter… Wallaman Falls!

Wallaman Falls – the largest single drop waterfall in Australia.

Ryan has lived in this region since BIRTH and had never visited Wallaman Falls.

Is this surprising?

Well, I suppose it is considering it’s the largest single drop Waterfall in Australia!

I mean, wouldn’t you want to see it? (feel free to add a comment below)

Anyhoo, I’ve been nagging him for years and a month or so ago when the weather was YUK for fishing, we headed off for the day.

And since Wallaman Falls is only 80 or so kilometres from our house, it was an easy day trip with a sleep in. Yes!



Surrounded by World Heritage Rain forest, Wallaman Falls (Stony Creek) plunges 268 metres in a clear single drip mesmerising to behold.

It lies within Girringun National Park  and is about 50k’s south-west of Ingham.

Also part of the National Park is Blencoe Falls which we visited a few years ago.

You can camp at Wallaman, Blencoe in the national park or if you have fur babies you’ll need to go private.

For Ryan’s 50th birthday we headed beyond Blencoe to Goshen Station at the headwaters of the Herbert River. Spectacular gorges and beautiful running water made for a glorious experience.

The road to Wallaman Falls from Ingham was spectacular although the turns were TIGHT. Hence the road is not recommended for caravans.


Events of the day.

We had such a great day even though Roxy got attacked by a chook, we nearly lost the drone and never actually made it to the bottom of the falls.

Doh! Makes for a good video though and we hope you enjoy it. 

To see the view from the bottom of the falls, there's a short video here for those interested.
