Minyon Falls Walks

Minyon Falls and the untouched Minyon valley makes you feel like you have gone back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The valley with its ancient rainforest vegetation gives it all a very 'Jurassic Park' feel. Minyon Falls are awesome as they rise over 100m out of the rainforest, towards the sky. It's magical! All this is on the doorstep of Byron Bay, NSW. Join us on the short or long guided walk with a qualified Park Ranger to explore this amazing spectacle.

If you walk slowly and quietly, you are very likely to see wildlife. Wildlife you may see include: pademelon, eastern yellow robin, pale yellow robin, brown cuckoo dove, white headed pigeon, emerald dove, log runner, scrub wren, thornbill, peregrine falcon, yellow tailed black cockatoo, Alberts lyrebird, stoney creek frog, red eyed green tree frog, nightcap crayfish, eel, land mullet, lace monitor, skinks, and koala & kookaburra (at start).

Self Guided Walk

If you are an experienced walker you may choose to do this walk on your own, please check your car hire agreement (you may not be permitted to drive on unsealed roads), check a map and make sure you are doing the walk you intend to do (one walk is 4 km the other is 8km), check the conditions (this is not a good walk in the rain), wear shoes, take enough water and leave enough time (short walk 2 hours, long walk 4 hours). It may be cheaper to do this walk without a guide, but you may miss out on seeing some the wildlife and discovering wonderful information about what you are seeing plus the natural and human history of the area. Remember, life is about the journey not the destination.
