Kondalilla National Park is located 100km north of Brisbane and near Montville in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. It is named after the spectacular Kondlilla Falls

The falls are a result of the Skene Creek falling 90m and the Aboriginal name translated means 'rushing waters'.

There are two main walks. The Picnic Creek walk is a round trip of 2.4km and classified as Class 2 (Australian classifications) - an easy, reasonably level walk for all fitness levels. The main or Rock Pools walk takes you to the top of the falls and the swimming hole where there is a small part of the falls. This walk is 3.2km and Class 3 - a well defined track with most steep inclines treated as stairs. Caution is needed in exposed areas especially after heavy rain.

There is no wheelchair access and the slope from the carpark to the entrance of the NP is quite steep.

Unfortunately, last time I visited the main track was closed due to wet conditions. I will have to go back. I got back in 2012 and enjoyed the walk to the top falls and swimming hole but the track to the bottom of the main falls is still closed.

Directions: 4km north of Montville - on the left.
