The park is named after the spectacular Kondalilla Falls, where you will see Skene Creek drop 90 metres into the rainforest valley below.

Several walking tracks are located within the park, including the Picnic Creek circuit, a 1.7km walk that takes approximately 1 hour to complete. This is an easy walk that passes through tall eucalypts and over Picnic Creek up to a lookout. A more challenging track is the Kondalilla Falls circuit, a 4.7km walk that takes between 2-3 hours with over 100 steps down to the base of the falls. A moderate level of fitness is required.
