Starting from the car park at the end of Lookout Road, Wallaman, this walk takes you to the Djinda Lookout and the base of the Wallaman Falls via the Djinda Walk track, visiting Herbert River Lookout along the way. With its 268 metre drop into a 20 metre deep rock pool, Wallaman Falls is the tallest single-drop waterfall in Australia. From the Wallaman Falls Lookout near the start, you’ll get a truly exceptional view of this huge waterfall. With the big vertical rock face and green scenery around it, the fall looks like a high-definition desktop background. After taking in that view, you’ll be heading down to the base of the waterfall via a narrow and steep track. Lift your head up every once in a while to have a chance to see rainbows from different angles. When you get to the base, the sheer size of the waterfall will surely dazzle you as the refreshing water spray cools you off. Swimming is not recommended due to falling rocks/boulders from the top. Take care around the base of the waterfall as the wet rocks can be extremely slippery, and try to avoid this hike after rain to be safe. Keep an eye out for snakes in warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
