Lush rainforest and chalky drops, here is my guide to waterfalls in Queensland. Find out the best time to visit with this seasonal guide, which
recommends the best time of year and the best time of day to visit each waterfall using hydrologic knowledge, to get the most out of your visit.
Compiled by hydrologist Brad Neal, the guide also includes information about
how to get there, facilities available, viewing angles, waterfall dimensions, swimming
opportunities, a photo/video and my personal impressions. This website only includes
waterfalls that I have personally visited and photographed, which in Queensland at the current time consists
of waterfalls on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

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.
