Access this swimming hole via the boardwalk entrance off Lindsay Road or via Quorn Close. It’s an easy walking circuit which will take you underneath towering palm trees and over babbling creek crossings to the Insta-famous waterfall and swimming hole. There’s also a picnic-perfect memorial garden.

One of the Coast’s most loved swimming holes, Kondalilla Falls just outside Mapleton has something for everyone. The Falls circuit will take 2-3 hours to complete and includes over 100 steps so relax, take your time and enjoy the scenery. Don’t feel like swimming? Viewing the cascading falls is excuse enough for a trip. Take Flaxton Drive onto Kondalilla Falls Road and follow for about 2km to the car park.

Off Obi Lane South, Gardener’s Falls is an easy 10 minute walk from the carpark, taking you alongside the creek to a waterhole oasis. There’s also a rope swing for the brave. Turn off the Maleny-Landsborough Road about 3km from Maleny town centre. Follow Obi Lane South for 1.5km.
