CURTIS FALLS | TAMBORINE NATIONAL PARK

Many natural attractions greet the Tamborine Mountain visitor. A number of breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls are located all over the mountain and are often the reason why so many visitors return time and again.

Located in the heart of Tamborine Mountain, “Curtis Falls” is the only waterfall that can be viewed from the bottom of the falls. Being fed by “Cedar Creek”, a permanent creek, the falls run all year-round. The walking track ends at a viewing platform overlooking a large rock pool, with great views of the falls and the surrounding columnar basalt rock face.
