Goomoolahra Falls

Just a short walk along a well formed track from the car park leads to Goomoolahra Falls where Mundora Creek cascades over the rhyolite cliffs to the subtropical rainforests below. A lookout provides spectacular views of the World Heritage National Park, with The Pinnacle standing proud before views of the distant Gold Coast and offshore islands.

South and North Stradbroke Island are easily seen and on a clear winters day, the sandhills of Moreton Island are visible and offshore cargo ships can often be seen.

Mundora Creek flows all year round, fed by the basalt aquifers above, and provides an important resource for the surrounding vegetation and unique habitats, before eventually reaching the Hinze Dam (Gold Coast's water supply).

An additional short walk continues along the cliff edge from the waterfall lookout, which crosses a small creek (which is sometimes visited by the threatened Lamington Spiny Blue Crayfish - Euastacus sulcatus) and leads to another small lookout with spectacular views.
