Description The Wallaman Falls section of Girringun National Park forms part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. It boasts spectacular scenery and an array of plant and animal life. The creeks and rivers are home to platypus, eastern water dragons and saw-shelled turtles. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a musky rat-kangaroo or an endangered southern cassowary. 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. Wallaman Falls camping area is adjacent to Stony Creek. Gas barbecues, picnic tables, shelter sheds, water and a cold water shower are provided. Remember to treat all water before drinking. Two short walks are available from Wallaman Falls. These walks have been given language names by the Traditional Owners—the Warrgamaygan Aboriginal people. Use a spotlight or strong torch with a red filter to reveal the nocturnal residents of the park. Hold the light close beside your face and look along the beam to see frogs, spiders, possums and other creatures. The red filter will avoid causing stress to the animals.
