Girringun National Park is an extensive national park in far north Queensland that covers five areas, each offering unique natural attractions, with Wallaman Falls the highlight.
These impressive falls, located 51km south-west of Ingham, happen to be Australia’s highest single drop waterfall. Spilling 305m into a sparkling pool, this is definitely a destination not to be missed.
A breathtaking sight, the falls can be viewed through a rainbow-fringed cloud of early morning mist or, for a different viewpoint, a strenuous 4km return track leads to their base.
If you don’t want to make the trip down, you can walk 300m to the lookout over the Herbert River Valley, which is well worth it.
Wallaman Falls is located 51km south-west of Ingham in far north Qld.
Walk-in bush camping is available – facilities are limited to flush toilets. A camping permit must be obtained prior to arrival ($6.15 per person per night or $24.60 per
family per night).
