Starting from the car park at the end of Morialta Falls Road, Woodforde, this walk takes you past Giant's Cave and the Kookaburra Rock Lookout via the First Falls Valley Walk. The trail to Giant's Cave is a well-maintained gravel track, with many stone steps leading up to the cave. From the cave, walkers have the option of descending the stairs and following a narrow and rocky path to the Kookaburra Rock Lookout, where there are spectacular views over the gorge. There is clear signage throughout, and the park has BBQ and picnic facilities, public toilets and a children's playground. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
