Morans Falls track, in Lamington National Park, starts near the national park’s information centre.

Subtropical rainforest of booyongs, figs and brush box flank the track for the 140 metre stroll to the lookout over Morans Falls. An excellent view of Morans Falls and Morans Creek gorge can be seen here. Plummeting 80 metres to the valley floor, Morans Falls fluctuates between a thunderous roar after rain, to a gentle trickle in the drier months. The falls are slowly working through the softer rock beneath, causing rockfalls and reshaping the cliff facechanges that are barely visible in our lifetime. Take care as the track can be slippery and check for Park Alerts in wet weather.

Layers of ancient volcanic lava flows are also visible; the more resistant have formed small cliff-lines along the valley, and are best seen at the second lookout located at the end of the track. Stop for a picnic at the top of the falls. Think back to a time when a bark hut stood herethe first mountain home of the OReilly brothers.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
