Minyon Falls Nightcap National Park

Descending for almost 100 metres, the water cascading over Minyon Falls, is a popular visitor attraction within easy reach of Byron Bay.

Minyon Falls is a plunge waterfall on the Repentance Creek in the Nightcap National Park in the Northern Rivers of NSW. The water flows over rhyolite cliffs which were once part of the Tweed Volcano.

Nightcap National Park was added to Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Site in 1986. National Parks and Wildlife Service manages the area and provides visitor facilities such as a 50m boardwalk to the lookout (wheelchair accessible), several picnic tables and BBQ facilities at the top of the falls.

Visitors can explore the bottom of Minyon Falls along designated walking trails but all of which involve steep hills and some climbing over wet rocks at the base of the waterfall. A reasonable level of fitness is required.

Do note that the waterfall depends on rain. So there may not always be a lot of water to see.
