Queen Mary Falls
Bush walking is one of the many pleasurable experiences around the beautiful Queen Mary Falls. Once named Upper Daggs Falls, Queen Mary Falls are a beautiful sheer 40 meter drop of spring water flowing all year round, surrounded by bush orchids, native ferns, and flowers that show their beauty in the springtime.
The walk takes you down to the foot of the falls where you find absolute peace and tranquility. Queen Mary Falls are actually the top tier of three waterfalls situated in the mountains behind the small town of Killarney.
It was once said by the locals that Queen Mary Falls were actually named after Queen Mary herself, who as a child traveled on horseback to see these magnificent waterfalls. The proof of this story is still hanging in the balance, as royal visits to this area at the time is a little hard to prove.
Browns Falls and Daggs Falls are at the bottom of the range leading up to Queen Mary Falls. Browns Falls are also very beautiful. There is a 20 minute walk in from the road near Browns Falls picnic area which is well worth the walk. A short adventure along the creek, a little rock hopping, and you feel as if you are in an unknown wilderness.
Daggs Falls can be seen from a platform lookout about 3km below Queen Mary Falls, and are just as spectacular as Queen Mary Falls.
