Starting from Kalymna Falls Camping Area, Pomonal, this return walk takes you to Kalymna Falls via Mount William Picnic Ground Road. The walk, through which you can enjoy views from Mount William and the Major Mitchell Plateau, is relatively short, with occasional steps. The surrounding forest also offers you tranquillity, and it is possible to see the wildlife as well. Kalymna Falls is seasonal, and it is best to visit the area during Spring after rainfalls when the flowers are blooming, and the flow is intense. William Picnic Ground Road is closed during the wet season, so you might want to check the forecast before you travel to the area. 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.
