Minyon Falls are located in Nightcap National Park in the Byron Hinterland.
How to get there:
The quickest route from Byron Bay is around 34km and roughly a 45 minute drive. The last 2.5 km of the road is unsealed, and quite potholed. You don't need a 4WD but it will get a bit bumpy in places.
What to expect:
Drive through the beautiful Byron Bay Hinterland to Minyon Falls lookout, offering stunning views over the falls and rainforest below. With easy parking, picnic spots and barbecue facilities, it’s a fantastic day trip. There is also a great hiking track to the base of the waterfall where you can take a dip - allow for 3-4 hours if you are doing the base walk, there are stairs and boardwalk in sections as well as large boulders to navigate, so a moderate level of fitness and mobility is required for the base walk.
