Kondalilla Falls, Montville

(4.3/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
In terms of natural beauty, these waterfalls are unbeatable. Kondalilla Falls stands in the middle remnant subtropical rainforest, full of hoop pines, piccabeen palms, and eucalypt trees. William Skene discovered it by accident while searching for lost cattle. The falls got their name from the Aboriginal word for running water. Take a refreshing swim in two natural pools and dry off on the warm rocks. You can also hike in the rainforest hike but camping is not permitted.

  • A nice short walk to a wonderful swimming hole at the top of the falls, we went in the morning on a weekday and their was only a small group of people in the area. It is a wonderful morning out about an hour north of Brisbane. Well worth the drive.
  • Great walk, easy to moderate depending on fitness levels. Can be completed comfortably in thongs. Awesome swimming holes, which are quite deep and safe to jump into. Would visit again!
  • There wasn't much rain recently so the water fall is not really a water fall. It is just a rock which gives you the idea where water could be. I think it is a really good trip if there is no drought. But right now even the place where you can swim is not very inviting because of the old water.
  • A wonderful hidden gem! Easy parking, easy walk and in summer (Jan) the water was absolutely perfect for a swim.
  • Amazing swimming hole (rockpools) butpretty tiring to get to because of a steep incline. Drive there is gorgeous and it's worth it to jump off the rock face into such nice water!
