Summary: Goondaree Falls is one of two adjacent waterfalls along the West Canungra Creek Circuit bushwalk. The wide and picturesque waterfall drops into a wide pool.

Two picturesque waterfalls are in close proximity along West Canungra Creek: the signposted Goondaree Falls, and a little upstream the Wongaree Falls. The waterfall drops over a couple of tiers into a pool at the base, which is surrounded by lush rainforest.
