Nandroya Falls circuit track, Palmerston (Doongan)

From the western side of Henrietta Creek camping area, cross the footbridge over Henrietta Creek. After a short distance the track divides—the left branch leads 1.7km to Nandroya Falls, winding along the upper valley of Douglas Creek, passing the 10m high Silver Creek Falls on the way. The right branch is a longer 3.5km route to the falls. At Nandroya Falls, Douglas Creek drops in a narrow, uninterrupted, 50m fall from a basalt parapet. This walk can be done as a circuit walk, returning by the alternative route.
