I went to Leura Cascades today and loved it. It was such a gorgeous little hike. It was short and fairly easy. Because it was all under the cover of the trees it also offered a small reprieve from the heat. The waterfalls are beautiful....More

Enjoyed this lovely walk today down through the rain forest following the cascades which end in a great lookout overlooking the valley. Takes about 40 minutes there and back. Great scenery.

Great to hop off the bus and do the walk to the lower cascades and back for an hour or spend half a day with a picnic lunch. Go early before 10am to avoid the many tour buses
