Description Blencoe Falls, Girringun National Park boasts spectacular scenery and an array of plant and animal life. The falls plunge 90 m to the pool below, before cascading a further 230 m to the base of the gorge. Just as impressive is the Herbert River Gorge with its towering cliffs and dry, rugged ridges. Open forest dominates the escarpments and she-oaks line the Herbert River. Along the gullies and upper slopes of the Herbert River Gorge, vine-thicket rainforest scattered with hoop pines persists. In the open forest, animals such as the elegant whiptail wallaby and gangly emu try to find sanctuary from the heat. In the river and creeks, freshwater turtles can be seen basking on logs or peering through the surface of the water. Natural, cultural and historical values make this region a truly special place. We invite you to explore the park, learn about its history and enjoy the diverse plant and animal life. Walk-in and vehicle-based camping is available at Blencoe Falls camping area. Toilets are provided and water can be collected from Blencoe Creek—treat all water before use. Camping permits are required and fees apply. A tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.
