Morans Falls - Lamington National Park


Morans Falls is a quite easy walk from O'Reilly's Guest House in the Lamington National Park. The 4.4 km (90 minute) track allows views of the falls from a distance, as well as continuing to the top of the falls, looking out in to the valley below.

After the walk you will have plenty of time to check out some of the other attractions at O'Reilly's Guest House, including a replica of the Stinson Airliner that crashed in remote bushland in 1937. 2 survivors of the crash were rescued by Bernard O'Reilly in an amazing feat of bushcraft.

Also nearby is another short walk definitely worth the effort. The Tree Top walk is only 800m, but consists of 9 sections of suspension bridges up to 16 metres off the forest floor. You can also ascend to a viewing platform in a fig tree 30 metres high.
