Track description:

Murray Falls in Girramay National Park has a large, well kept camping area with plenty of space for bush camping amongst the eucalypts. It is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the chance to swim in the creek and do some walking.

The rainforest walk leaves from the rear of the campground away from the creek. It passes through large rainforest trees with their spreading buttress roots mixing with the granite boulders which dominate the forest floor. Climbing out of the rainforest past a huge rock slab, you reach the hotter, more open woodlands and wind your way around the hill to the top of the falls. Here you will be rewarded with some magnificent views down the waterfall to the campground and across to the ranges beyond. This walk has information signs about the local Aboriginal history of the Girramay people and the plants and animals of the area.

How to get there:

Murray Falls is well sign posted from the Bruce Highway. Turn off at Murrigal, about 14 kilometres south of Tully, or at Bilyana, about 22 kilometres north of Cardwell. These roads meet and either way, it is about 20 kilometres from the highway to Murray Falls campground. The last few kilometres are on a dirt road.
