Wind your way through the rainforest of the Budderoo National Park to reach the two-tiered Minnamurra Falls. This spectacular waterfall walk is a 3 mi out-and-back trail that starts and ends at the Minnamurra Rainforest Centre in the Budderoo National Park, New South Wales – loved for its rainforest walks, waterfalls and breath-taking lookouts.
Graded as a Medium difficulty walking route, it is a well-signposted walk and consists mainly of a raised walkway and paved path that meanders through the dense moss and fern-covered rainforest. There are some very steep sections on the way, with a decent total elevation gain of 1029 ft taking you up to the viewing platforms at Minnamurra Falls. However, the trail is considered accessible to anyone with a reasonable level of fitness, and if a break to enjoy the view is required, there are seats along the trail, allowing you to take a quiet moment to look out for the native wildlife and birdlife.

Usually completed in around 2 hours, the track itself is well-maintained and takes you extremely close to the waterfall for wonderful photo opportunities before you retrace your steps and wander back through the rainforest enjoying the descent this time. Caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here.
It should be noted that the first 500 metres of the trail into the rainforest is wheelchair accessible, but this does not reach the waterfall platforms.
A $12 AUD per vehicle, per day park entry fee applies but only in the Minnamurra Rainforest area and dogs are not allowed in NSW national parks and reserves for the protection and conservation of the park and its wildlife.
