During our holiday in Byron Shire we drove to the top of Minyon Falls in the Nightcap National Park. The Falls plunge a depth of around 100m into a deep palm-shaded gorge. It had been raining heavily and often in the days before we went so they were pretty spectacular.
After admiring the waterfall from above we drove about halfway down the mountain to follow the rainforest trail to the bottom of the falls. The walk was quite easy going down - a bit tougher on the way back up; especially as I spotted seed pods that would make magical boats and started loading up my arms with them ~ they weren't heavy but made balancing on the wet and slippery track a challenge!
The falls belong to the larger area known as Minyon Falls Flora Reserve. The area has high scientific, recreational and scenic value and so is excluded from all logging operations.
