Chasing Waterfalls

One of my absolute favorite things to do is go for a hike. I especially love hikes up mountains and hikes to waterfalls. We recently went on a road trip to Killarney about 2 hours away from Brisbane, this trip was going to be my ultimate day out as it consisted of 3 waterfalls in one day, woo hoo!!!


The first falls were Browns Falls which was only a 600m walk. I thought we would knock this off in about 20 minutes. I was sadly mistaken, there is no defined path and a lot of stepping stones over flowing water. Needless to say I fell in the water, it was absolutely freezing, (it is winter in Oz) and I had a bit of a tantrum. We never made it to that  waterfall cause I couldn't feel my feet. I went back to the car dried off and changed my shoes.


We then went to Daggs Falls which is just a look out over the most breathtaking water fall.


Last but not least, Queen Mary Falls. I was so excited as you get to walk to the bottom of the falls.  The walk is about 2km and took about 30 minutes, it is a  loop track which is great cause you cant get lost. It was very busy at the viewing deck and people hung out there and didn't move for other people to see the view, (insert angry face). Other than that it was pretty magical place. I love being in nature it clears my head and reminds me to be more present. Do you love nature or are you more a city girl?

Hi Luan. I've just seen your comment on Hawthorn's blog and thought I'd pop by and have a look, & found you live in my part of the world, so welcome back to blogland and hope you find your strengths, but I'm sure you have many already. Lovely falls & I'm more of a country person than city. Take care.

Oh, wow! I love waterfalls and hike in parks all the time. Your country has nicer and wilder scenery than mine, so I envy what you have there. I hope to visit it sometime. Enjoy.

So very beautiful, loved seeing your pictures. It is fantastic to see waterfalls. I saw some at the Blue Mountains a few months ago and it gave me a new appreciation for them.

Give me nature every time, I need to breathe that clear wild air that only being out on the hills can do! Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting x
