Accommodation close to Whian Whian Falls:
Whian Whian Falls is in a rural area. The nearest accommodation that I could find was a farm stay 1.5 km north of Dunoon, and approximately 1.5 km from the falls. It is a pet-friendly one bedroom house
for up to four guests, with polished floorboards and a verandah with an outlook over the farm. The hosts of this property state that guests also have access to over 100 acres of Macadamia farm at the
back of the property for walks.
Accomodation in the nearest large town (Lismore):
Whilst there are a few villages that are closer to the falls (e.g. Dunoon), the nearest sizeable town to Killen Falls by road is Lismore, which is roughly 21 km by road to the south.
For those who would prefer to stay within easy reach of the falls but closer to amenities in town, here are three accommodation options within the commercial district of Lismore, with
access to shops, pubs and restaurants.

Caravan and camping accommodation for Whian Whian Falls:
There is no camping at Whian Whian Falls. The closest camping I could find is the national park campground at Rummery Park
Campground up near Minyon Falls, which has picnic tables, barbecue facilities (BYO firewood and water) and toilets, and is suitable for both tents and caravans.
There are several caravan parks in Lismore, all within easy driving distance to the falls, but some of these were affected by the floods in 2022, either due to flood damage
or to provide emergency accommodation for locals whose homes were affected by the floods. One that appeared to be accepting guests in 2022 was the Lucky Country Leisure Park,
which has a self-check in system with no bookings in advance.
