Purling Brook Falls reviews
If you like nature you will like these falls. Family friendly walks and brilliant views of the hinterland more »
It’s a 4K round loop, simple, walk down the ridge to the falls then walk back, toilets by the car park. Not to difficult , they say start clockwise to avoid steps coming back. It’s a well worn track..... more »
We have done both the short walk straight down to Purlingbrook Falls and the long walk (16km) from the Springbrook National Park car park. The short walk is pleasant and quite easy. My 8 year old daughter and my 74 year old father (who had a hip replacement only 6 months ago) did it not problems and took around an hour. The waterfall is amazing. You can swim at the base of the waterfall which is cool, and refreshing (especially after the long walk).
A great walk! It took roughly around 2 hours to do the Purling Brook falls circuit (2 adults - moderate fitness level). The track itself is very easy to follow and there are some spectacular sights of the waterfall and tropical foliage. Be aware that there was a lot of rustling during the walk due to these little buggers (see picture)
