I can’t speak highly enough of this little picnic area located, not surprisingly, in Sommersby. It is a delightful spot for a walk, a picnic, a bbq or (as I am quite fond of) a sneaky spot of lunchtime yoga if you work nearby. Water spilling over lichen covered rocks in this picturesque rainforest location presents a multitude of photo opportunities and serene spots to sit and listen to the water cascading down the falls, meditate or read a book.
Multifarious bird life, sandwich loving bush turkeys and water monitors and abound in this corner of Brisbane Water National Park. Well maintained steps and natural pathways lead you down the hill to viewing platforms and access points to the falls. In the pools at the base of Lower Falls you will often see children and young people in swimsuits enjoying a paddle in the shallow water. If you are very lucky, on a quiet day you may spot a turtle making the most of the tourist free solitude.
