Stairway Falls and Yerrahla(Blue Pool)
Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this walk takes you to the Stairway Falls and back, visiting Yerralahla Rock Pool(Blue Pool) and some waterfalls along the way. Don’t forget to pack your swimmers for this one as you’ll pass by multiple swimming holes only to find more at the end. You will have the option to swim above or below the gorgeous waterfall, but the experience will be serene and satisfactory regardless. Enjoy the cool & refreshing waters of Canungra Creek as you savor the lovely scenery around you. If lucky, you can spot some ‘yabbies’(Australian term) here, a species of crayfish known as spiny blue crayfish. Other than that, remember to stop every once in a while to observe what the rainforest has to offer. Keep in mind that you may run into snakes along/near the track, especially in warmer months. Expect to get wet at least to the ankle when preparing, and keep an eye out for eels in the water. The track involves a fair bit of rock hopping. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
