The spectacular waterfall in the Columba Falls State Reserve has never been known to run dry since its discovery. With an average annual rainfall of 780mm, the area supports lush rainforest which provides a spectacular setting for the much-admired falls.
The downhill St Columba Falls walk to the foot of the falls features giant tree ferns and is listed by the Parks and Wildlife Service among its 60 Great Short Walks. No bushwalking experience is required for the 20-30 minute return stroll. The track has a hardened and compacted surface.
Interpretative signs tell the story of the reserve. To add to your enjoyment of this rainforest paradise, pack lunch or a snack and relax at the picnic area which has a view of the falls. The ground may be slippery so make sure your footwear is sturdy. Pack a light raincoat in case of rain and to avoid the spray from the cascading falls.
The surrounding area, which includes the rich dairying district of Pyengana and fascinating Blue Tier, is well worth including on any itinerary to St Columba Falls State Reserve.
