Minyon Falls Tours
Read MoreShow Less
From the lookout at Minyon Falls, visitors will hear the roar of cascading, rushing water as it falls over the rock formations and gathers in a natural swimming pool down below. In addition to the waterfall, travelers can also catch coastal views and let the surrounding rain forest engulf their senses. Whether visiting the falls while passing through on a hiking trek or a cycling adventure, stop and enjoy this World-Heritage-listed wonder at Nightcap National Park.
Provided picnic tables and barbecue pits make the falls an excellent place to rest and refuel for the journey back out of the park. Take a dip in the freshwater pool beneath the falls before heading off!
Minyon Falls is located in the eastern precinct of Nightcap National Park in New South Wales. The lookout is a short walk from the Minyon Falls parking lot and is open from sunrise to sunset, pending poor weather or fire danger. Check the local weather beforehand, as the falls are most active after wet weather. Bring your own drinking water.
