Booloumba Creek Day Use to Artist Cascades

A lovely rainforest walk following the river up to Artist cascades

Located in Conondale National Park which is 2 hours north of Brisbane and is accessible only by 4WD. This trail starts at Booloumba Creek Day Use area and is approximately 7km return. The trail is clearly marked and is suitable for most people. The highlight at the end is the Artists Cascades, a beautiful waterfall. Allow 3-4hours.


If you are visiting for the day, this is a great walk departing Booloumba Creek Day Use area. It is highly recommended to camp, with Campsite 3 being the most private between camps. The trail is clearly marked where you follow the creek under lush rainforest most of the way to the cascades. For a detailed map on Conondale National Park walks visit here.
