Cronan Creek Falls are a must-see Aussie Bucket List destination when visiting Mount Barney National Park. The trail commences at Yellow Pinch trail head, just under 2 hours drive from the Gold Coast or Brisbane.

There are four formed, graded walking tracks in Mount Barney National Park. These offer the opportunity to appreciate Mount Barney’s magnificence and to explore the park’s creeks and subtropical rainforest pockets without having to climb the mountain. All four walks are classified as grade 4 tracks. Some are longer than others, so choose a walk that suits your group’s fitness levels. Avoid walking in the heat of the day.
