Vision Walks Minyon Falls Walks

Come for a guided walk, with an environmental scientist, through the rainforest to see the majestic Minyon Falls.

Take a step back in time with us to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The ancient rainforest in the Minyon Valley has a distinct ‘Jurassic Park’ feel. From the forest floor, the striking Minyon Falls appear to fall from the sky 100 metres above you.

All this is on the doorstep of Byron Bay.

Vision Walks offers you the opportunity to share the magic of this place with an environmental scientist as your guide and companion. Join us on a short or long guided walk to explore this breathtaking spectacle. The secrets of the forest open up when you know what to look for.

On the way keep watch for the mystical lyrebird or a pademelon – one of our smallest macropods. Listen for the distinctive call of the yellow-tailed black cockatoo. Catch a glimpse of frogs, skinks, crayfish, tiny birds and lace monitors. These are just some of the wildlife you might see.

As with all our our eco tours, we request that you try and wear dark clothing if possible. We don’t draw attention to ourselves, to the wildlife that we are trying to see.

You’ll journey in style and comfort, either in our cozy eight-seater hybrid vehicle or our spacious 12-seater bus, depending on the group size for the tour.

Experienced walkers – you can do these walks on your own, but why miss out? What we offer takes a great short or long walk to a whole new level as we take you inside the rich natural and human history of this area.
