About Jourama Falls

    Park features

    A picturesque waterfall on Waterview Creek, rainforest, vine forest and open woodland are protected in this section of Paluma Range National Park in the foothills of the Seaview Range.

    Rainforest grows on the higher slopes and fringes the creek. Poplar gum, bloodwood, Moreton Bay ash and cocky apple trees are common in the open woodland.

    Looking after the park

    • Never chase, scare or feed animals.
    • Never leave food, dirty dishes or bars of soap unattended—Australian brush-turkeys and native giant white-tailed rats are nature’s perfect thieves.
    • Take all rubbish with you including food scraps.
    • Take care not to pollute fresh water. Do not use soap, shampoo or detergents in or near creeks.
    • Fires are not allowed. Use fuel stoves or the gas barbecues provided.
    • Stay on the track. Never cut corners or create new tracks.

    See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
