An impressive waterfall along Bundoomba Creek, Bundoomba Falls drops into a shallow pool, surrounded by dense rainforest. The water plunges first as a single drop, before fanning out over the rocky base of the falls.
A short distance away, on a tributary of the same creek, is another waterfall – but this one is almost dry despite the recent rain.
Downstream of the waterfall (after the two branches of Bundoomba Creek converge), are some smaller cascades.
This waterfall is often – incorrectly – referred to as the Darraboola Falls, which is further up the same valley but on a different creek.
Getting to Bundoomba Falls
This is the second major waterfall along the 18km West Canungra Creek Circuit if you’re doing the circuit in a clockwise direction. The West Canungra Creek Circuit branches off the Border Track from the O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat carpark at the end of Lamington National Park Road. It’s about 4.8km (one-way) to Bundoomba Falls from the start of the Border Track.
