Walking and driving instructions

The car park is a reasonable size and has toilets and picnic tables.

From the car park follow a well-maintained walking path, which brings you to the base of the waterfall. It's nice and easy 5 minutes walk.

Return via the same route. Total walking time is 5-10 minutes.

There is a great view of the waterfall and the upper cascade from under the bridge leading to Paronella Park. 

Mena Creek Waterfall is a permanent waterfall. Beautiful all year round.
