Lush rainforest and chalky drops, here is my guide to waterfalls in Queensland. Find out the best time to visit with this seasonal guide, compiled using my hydrologic knowledge.
I have personally visited and photographed all of the waterfalls on this website, which in Queensland at the current time consists
of waterfalls on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

Gardners Falls consists of two short drops, separated by a 40 metre long flat rock shelf in between, that allows you to listen to the falls in stereo sound.
Flow at this waterfall has been reliable over the last few decades, with the exception of recent very dry summers…
A fine silver curtain of water falls delicately into a rock chasm surrounded by the lush rainforest of the Buderim Forest Park on the Sunshine Coast. With
car parks at either end, find out which is the best place to start your walk to the falls…
Regular spills from a dam directly upstream make this an at times powerful twin waterfall in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Time your visit
to occur when the upstream dam is spilling to see this white and tan frothing cauldron in action…
If you are planning a visit to Queensland, there is a defined wet season in the tropics from November to March when it can be very wet, with the occasional
cyclone. Rainfall in southern Queensland is more variable, and can occur at any time of year but is generally less intense.
Waterfalls in Queensland are mostly located along the Great Dividing Range near the coast, and can be found along its length.
