Malanda Falls Conservation Park
Surrounded by dense rainforest, the North Johnstone River tumbles over basalt rock that was formed by an ancient lava flow at Malanda Falls. The much-photographed picturesque falls flow into an artificial swimming pool in this popular park near Malanda.
Have a picnic and take a dip in the pool. Follow the easy one kilometre Tulip Oak walk beside the river and through the rainforest. Learn about the Ngadjon-Jii culture from interpretive signs as you walk along the track. Watch for platypus from the viewing platforms. Keep an eye out for secretive tree-kangaroos, sometimes seen here.
