Great three hours spent doing the walk round minyons but I would say that whilst we managed the walk starting from the falls car park near to the falls we did not expect the walk back to take us to a different car park about...More

These are wonderful to view & just a short walk from the carpark. No dogs allowed as it is a National Park.

This was one of the best places I’ve ever been because of the wonder water and the amazing falls. I would recommend to anyone in that area. Be aware it is a long walk so DONT FORGET WATER. The water is very fresh but cold.

A great walk, wouldn’t do it in thongs. Lots of exposed tree roots. Really enjoyed being out in the bush, spotting wildlife and the falls at the bottom were amazing, so high. Would have been more spectacular if there had been rain but the rock...More

We loved these falls. It has rained heavily in the days preceding our visit. The falls were really raging. A very impressive sight, and somewhat unusual for Australia. It’s a slightly testing drive in but then a very short walk from the car park. I’d...More

The online info for this isn't great so i had to call the parks office to confirm the start point. There is a circular track you can take but it's not well advertised at the beginning of the walk. It is well sign posted when...More

In the right season this might be a nice place to visit but now it was... disappointing. One can take a 4.5 kms walk to the base of the fall but it did not attract us, certainly not because it started raining. To reach the...More

The roads to the falls not very well sign posted. The signs get smaller and faded and at one intersection they completely forgot to put a sign. The roads leading to the falls very narrow, winding and full of potholes. Once onto the national park...More

A great activity if you're looking to escape the beach. We started at the Minyon Falls lookout (spectacular views) and walked the trail past the base of the falls to the Grass Day area then back. The whole walk took 3 And a half hours...More

Use a GPS and head for Byron Bay. The place is in Nightcap-National-Park and be aware the track is not suitable for disabled or small cars. It is unreal how potted and bumpy it is.
