A very short walk to a lookout offering stunning views down onto Daggs Falls, a lovely waterfall that plunges 40m into a shallow pool below.
This moderately trafficked lookout is located near Killarney, on Spring Creek Road.
The lookout involves a constructed platform overlooking the falls located on the roadside, requiring only a 20 metre walk from the car park.
There is a cascading section at the top of the waterfall, before Teviott Brook plunges 40 metres to the pools below.
This walk is great when paired with other activities in the area, including Queen Mary Falls, Browns Falls and Carrs lookout. These collectively are known as the ‘Falls Drive’.
Track: The lookout is located at the site of the car park on the roadside, and thus does not require an actual hike.
Difficulty: This walk is suitable for all fitness levels, including those in wheelchairs.
Direction: This is an out-and-back walk that returns the way it came.
The lookout is located on Spring Creek Road, in Killarney, 2.25 hours drive south-west of Brisbane.
Parking is ample for how trafficked the location is.
best time to go
The walk can be completed year-round.
Like all walks involving waterfalls, it is best done after recent rain.
