Kondalilla Falls, Montville

4.4
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Montville
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.

  • Unfortunately stairs and paths all the way down and back up. Very hard for unfit people and elderly people. Well worth it if you can manage to get down and back up. Had lunch in carpark when we arrive...  more »

  • A beautiful walk in the road to Kondalilla falls. To transition 4.6 km so comfortable shoes are advisable. Views indemnify labors. Recommend.

  • Conventional beautiful waterfall. The walk to the falls is longer as compared to others though. Some wildlife like lizards etc. can also be seen around. Close to Brisbane city and ideal for a day's excursion.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful walks. We went on a Tuesday , was quite busy. You can also swim in the pools.
  • Great scenery with good walking trails. Good picnic area also.
  • 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!
