More Walks at Blackdown Tablelands National Park, QLD.

View from Yaddamen Dhina Lookout
Yaddamen Dhina Lookout, or Horseshoe Lookout is an easy 200m return walk. We visited this lookout in the afternoon and we loved it so much that we returned and had breakfast in the Day Use Area the day we left Blackdown Tablelands so that we could go to the lookout again.

Yaddamen Dhina Day Use Area has tables, BBQs, an amenities block and is the only place in the national park that has taps (non-potable water). There is an emergency phone at the entry shelter across the road. Both the Lookout and Goodela Walk leave from here. It is a further 8 km from here on an unsealed road to Munall Camping Area.

Breakfast at the Yaddamen Dhina Day Use Area 
Goodela Walk: 3.6 km return, moderate grade. The Goodela walk also leaves from the Day Use car park. The walk along the escarpment in a eucalyptus forest offers similar views to those that can be seen from the Yaddamen Dhina Lookout. 

Goodela Walk
Gudda Gumoo, Rainbow Falls Walk: 3.6 km return, moderate, to the lookout or 4 km return, difficult, into the gorge to see the falls.

The trail-head for the Gudda Gumoo or Rainbow Falls Walk is about 8 km past Munall Campground by unsealed road. At the trail-head there is a car park and bush toilet but no picnic area. The walk descends gently to the lookout, however, there is no view of the falls. To see the falls, it is necessary to descend to the base of the falls. The last section descends steeply via 240 steps.

We enjoyed the walk and saw many birds along the trail.
