Starting from the Minyon Falls car park on Minyon Drive, Whian Whian, this walk takes you on a circuit past the Minyon Falls Lookout, the base of Minyon Falls and the Minyon Grass Lookout via the Minyon Falls Walk. This moderately challenging loop initially follows a boardwalk to a wheelchair accessible lookout at the top of Minyon Falls, an impressive 100m high plunge waterfall located within Nightcap National Park. From there, the walk crosses Repentance Creek via stepping stones and follows the ridge through dry eucalypt forest, passing an optional side trip to Condong Falls, then descends into the gorge and continues through dense rainforest, passing small cascades and crystal clear creeks. The walk crosses Repentance Creek again before reaching a large pile of boulders, marked with orange triangles, which requires scrambling over to reach the base of Minyon Falls. After exploring the waterfall and swimming hole, walkers can continue to the Minyon Grass Lookout, which offers spectacular views across the rainforest towards the falls. The walk can also be started from the Minyon Grass car park and can be done as a loop by walking along Minyon Drive from one car park to the other. This loop consists of wide and narrow walking trails and unsealed roads, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, compacted gravel surfaces, boardwalk sections, rock scrambling sections, creek crossings, steep hills and steps, suitable for moderate fitness levels. 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.
