Witches Falls Circuit is one of the best bushwalks on Mount Tamborine, traversing through lush rainforest before reaching a lookout over Witches Falls with inland views of the Dividing Range. While the falls only flow after recent rain, this is still an extremely rewarding bushwalk.
This track zigzags down the steep mountainside through open forest with banksia trees and into rainforest with huge strangler figs. You will pass seasonal lagoons surrounded by piccabeen palm groves and rainforest before you reach Witches Falls. After heavy rain the lagoons fill with water and come to life with many species of insects and frogs. The track returns through rainforest and behind the cemetery. The falls only flow after recent rain and can be viewed via a 200m detour from the circuit to a lookout platform.
The Witches Falls Circuit starts from the picnic area on Main Western Road. The grassy areas have electric barbecues, picnic tables and toilets, and are surrounded by tall eucalypts.
3.1km return. Moderate grade.
