Situated in a world heritage site, the falls are surrounded by unique plants, flowers and wildlife. A brief hike on graduated steps brings you to a picnic area where you can relax and watch the amazing waterfall as it cascades into the depths below.

The surrounding environment of Purlingbrook Falls is almost unmatched for serenity. From the lookout above the falls, you can appreciate the plant life that thrives in this rain forest. Make sure you bring your camera to capture some of the beautiful scenery around here, as well as the falls themselves.

Take a walk around the Purlingbrook Falls Circuit which is a 4km walk that takes most approximately 2 hours to complete. The walk is moderate and suitable for all ages, but make sure you bring some good walking shoes as some parts are rocky and can be slippery. Note that it is easier to walk in a clockwise direction, or else you will end up climbing up 450 steps at the end of your hike! For those just wanting a short stroll, head down to the lookout which is only a short 300-metre walk and the view is beautiful.
