Girringun National Park is comprised of 6 sections—Blencoe Falls, Dalrymple Gap walking track, Mount Fox, Princess Hills, Wairuna and Wallaman Falls. Take in the spectacular views of Wallaman Falls, Australia’s highest single-drop waterfall. Or experience the sites and sounds of Blencoe Falls as they race towards the Herbert River. Follow in the footsteps of the early European explorers and hike the 10km Dalrymple Gap walking track. Or take a steep climb up the conical-shaped, ancient volcano known as Mount Fox and enjoy views of the crater and surrounding Kangaroo Hills countryside. The spectacular Herbert River plunges over a rockface to form Herbert River Falls, on the edge of the park at Princess Hills. View a rich diversity of water birds using the seasonal waterholes and lagoons at Wairuna.
