Starting from the car park at the end of Mapleton Falls Road, Mapleton, this walk takes you to the Gheerulla Falls via the Wompoo Circuit and Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk tracks, visiting multiple creeks, viewpoints and a campsite along the way. Before you start, view the landscape and the waterfall from the Mapleton Falls Lookout to fill your dopamine gauge. Then explore the lush, dense rainforest that’s teeming with wildlife as you make your way up north. You’ll cross Pencil Creek and Gheerulla Creek several times before you start heading west towards the Ubajee Walkers’ Camp. Speaking of, you can spend the night at this cosy campsite and savor the magical view from the viewpoint at sunrise, just 50 metres away from your tent. The relaxing sound of bellbirds, kookaburras and owls will accompany you throughout your journey. Finally, you’ll arrive at Gheerulla Falls where there is a lovely swimming hole(depending on rainfall) that’s waiting for you to jump in. Cool off and let the water ready your legs for the ascent. Keep in mind that there may be leeches present after rainfall, so prepare accordingly. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
