National Parks

Waterfall Hideout is surrounded by some of the most beautiful Australian National Parks and World Heritage Rainforests, so whilst staying in our rainforest retreat cabin why not take a scenic drive to: 

Mt Warning The eroded central chamber of the world ‘s largest extinct shield volcano and the place where the dawn sun first touches the Eastern seaboard of the Australian continent. Meaning “cloud catcher” or “cloud warrior” depending on who you ask, the top of Mt Warning is approximately a 5 hour return hike.

Mount Warning is part of the United Nations World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.
