About Wallaman Falls Section
The Wallaman Falls Section of Girringun National Park forms part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. It boasts spectacular scenery and an array of plant and animal life. The Wet Tropics Great Walk enables you to discover some of the region’s diverse landscapes. The creeks and rivers are home to platypus, eastern water dragons and saw-shelled turtles. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the unique musky rat-kangaroo or the endangered southern cassowary.
The Wet Tropics Great Walk passes through the traditional lands of the Warrgamaygan Aboriginal people. The land holds great cultural significance to them.
Part of the walking track also follows a section of the Dalrymple Track. This historic route from the coast to the inland enabled essential supplies to be hauled to the frontier homesteads.
