One of the more impressive waterfalls along West Canungra Creek, Kalgamahla Falls drops overs a wide rock ledge with quite a powerful force (at least after rain). The waterfall can be seen from a number of angles, with the walking track approaching the falls from the eastern side…
…before crossing West Canungra Creek above the waterfall…
…and providing a view of the falls from the western side of the creek.
Above Kalgamahla Falls is a taller but much less powerful waterfall, where a side creek drops into West Canungra Creek.
Getting to Kalgamahla Falls
This waterfall is along the 18km West Canungra Creek Circuit, which starts along the Border Track from the O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat carpark at the end of Lamington National Park Road. The waterfall is around 6.7km from the Border Track and 9km frrom the Green Mountains trailhead (going in an anti-clockwise direction) – which puts pretty much exactly in the middle of the West Canungra Creek Circuit.
