A short walk, suitable for families, along a creek to a waterfall that only flows after substantial recent rain.

This lightly trafficked hike starts from Cliento Park in Nambour, at the end of Waterfall Road.

Facing the park from the cul de sac, head to the left-hand side of the park and find the track into the forest.

After a short stroll you will reach a rocky slab and cross the river. Continue along the path through bushland until you reach Robinson Falls.

The falls are typically only a trickle unless there has been substantial recent rain, however the track is still enjoyable and a great short hike for families.

Track: Graded and despite minimal signage, the track is easy to follow.

Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels.

Direction: The loop track can be completed in either direction, but it is recommended to complete the track in a clockwise direction.
