This is a fairly easy-to-reach waterfall in the D’Aguilar National Park, located about 45min from Brisbane and accessed via a relatively short and family-friendly bushwalk. However, Greenes Falls is not the most spectacular waterfall – it’s probably best described as “it is the journey rather than the destination that makes this 2-hour return trip walk a family favourite” (Brisbane Kids).
There is a viewing platform above the falls, from which you can see part of the waterfall and some of the rainforest in the valley below.
Although discouraged (and not advisable if you are with children, as the rocks can get very slippery), it’s not too difficult to continue down the rocks at the top of the waterfall. From the middle of the falls, there is a slightly better view down to the base of the falls.
Getting to Greenes Falls
The waterfall is accessed by the Rainforest Circuit and the Greenes Falls Track, which starts from the large Maiala day-use area (which has toilets and picnic facilities) on the eastern side of Mount Glorious Road, just past Mount Glorious township. The start of the walk is about 40km (45min) from Brisbane via either Mount Nebo Road or Mount Glorious Road.
