Love waterfalls!! Bloody love em eh? If there’s a track off the highway to a waterfall we are going to it!! So when a sign post pointed west from Ingham to Wallaman falls we took the windy road up the mountain to get to one almighty waterfall.

Wallaman falls is longest single drop waterfall in Australia. It’s massive!! The gushing water spills 278 meters off a beautiful rocky escarpment to a 20-meter deep plunge pool, which is surrounded by some of the oldest rainforest vegetation in Australia.

This picture was taken from the top about 15 minutes after the sunset. There is still a beautiful warm glow kissing the top right-hand edge of the frame and the soft light really shows up the amazing colours and textures in that rock face.

We did make the serious hike to the bottom of the falls and the ultra steep climb up, but my favorite picture was taken straight off the lookout near the car park… we were so lucky to get back there in time, I had only 2 minutes before the light was gone.

A few shots from the bottom of the falls will be rolling out over our instagram and facebook feeds over the next week or so.

This one can be on your wall !! Go Here to get it. Its our favourite waterfall shot in Queensland so far!
