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).
