A spectacular and powerful waterfall, Box Log Falls (Tullerigumai Falls) cascades over a rock ledge into a small gorge, which is lined with foliage. After heavy rain you can’t get close to the base of the waterfall without wading through waist-deep water; in the drier months it has two separate drops of water.
The name “Box Log” is from a large stand of Brush Box trees growing near to the falls, while “Tullerigumai” is the Aboriginal name for the falls which is from the Bundjalung language (meaning ‘log big’).
Getting to Box Log Falls (Tullerigumai Falls)
This is one of four waterfalls along the 10.3km Box Forest Circuit, which starts about 2.3km along the Border Track in the Green Mountains section of Lamington National Park. The waterfall is also part of the West Canungra Creek Circuit (13.9km loop) and is a very short side-trip off the Toolona Creek Circuit (17.4km loop). All these loop walks start with the Border Track from the O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat carpark at the end of Lamington National Park Road. It’s about 4km (one-way) to Elabana Falls from the start of the Border Track.
