In the Sunshine Coast Hinterland of southeast Queensland, just north of Montville among the Blackall Mountain Range, is Kondalilla National Park. Kondalilla is an Aboriginal word for ‘rushing waters’. Today we enjoyed hiking the Kondalilla Falls trail. The path meanders from the trailhead down to the Skene Creek and then snakes down to the bottom of a 300 foot drop through dense forest. The falls themselves were not overly impressive but the trail was fantastic. We were particularly interested in the plants and trees that are still new to us. On a warmer day, the rock pools would make a nice place to take a dip and enjoy the surroundings. Kondalilla NP was a pleasant way to spend the day.
