Walking and driving instructions


Mungalli Rapids are roughly a 45minutes’ drive away from Innisfail, or just 15 minutes’ from Millaa Millaa. From Millaa Millaa travel 11km south-east on the State Route 25 (Palmerston Highway), then turn left onto Junction Rd. Follow this road for 2.9km until you reach Mungalli Student Village and Wilderness Retreat (on your right). The road surface is sealed.

The car park at Mungalli Student Village and Wilderness Retreat has all sorts of facilities, including restaurant and toilets.

The top of Mungalli Falls and the rapids are seen from the retreat complex. However, if you start the walk which leads to Mungalli Falls, then in 2 minutes you’ll cross the creek via a concrete bridge. The best view of the rapids is from this bridge.

From here, either return via the same route (total walking time 5-10 minutes); or (highly recommended) walk the whole way down to the base of Mulgalli Falls (total walking time 35-40 minutes).

Mungalli Rapids are permanent cascades. Beautiful all year round. Best time to visit – Dec to Mar.
