Beautiful walks in nature. Did the Twin Falls Circuit - was breathtaking! Saw the Rainbow falls in the afternoon - 2 Rainbow’s visible - a wow moment! Warrie Circuit was a challenging - recommend taking a good first aid kit. The cutbacks were harsh. Good...More

Depends which waterfall walk, there are heaps of them in Springbrook National Park (about 8). For most of the walks if you do the complete track/circuit, you are looking around a 2 hour round trip. Best of All Lookout does NOT have any waterfall walks from it. Canyon Lookout can be used to shortcut to the Twin Falls Walk by about an hour (roughly). That walk takes you past Twin Falls and Blackfellow Falls, but you'll miss Ponyahra Falls as that's in the other direction off the Warrie Track diversion. Doing the Twin Falls Circuit from Tallanbanna Picnic Area is about a 2-3 hour return comfortable walk (depending how fast you walk). That includes a short diversion to Warrie to see Ponyahra Falls (worth seeing). The track splits in a few spots and isn't signposted, so it's best to go with a map of the place to figure out exactly where the splits lead you. Not that you'd get lost though. If you do the Twin Falls Circuit, you actually end up at the Canyon Lookout during the walk, before dropping back down into the valley. Purling Brook Falls is easiest to access (about an hours walk return), but it is STEEP in parts and has about 250 steps down and up. Twin & Blackfellow Falls walk is easier in parts, but longer to do to get the full effect. I find it's better doing the whole walk, else it's like watching a movie, watching the first 5 minutes, then skipping to the last 5 minutes and missing everything inbetween. If you shortcut it you'll miss some stunning glimpses from the top of the waterfalls looking across the valley. Feel free to hit me up via private message if you have any direct questions regarding these walks as I'm an extensive experienced bushwalker, and recently did waterfall walks in both Springbrook (in QLD) and Dorrigo National Parks (in NSW).
