Don’t go mid morning…. earlier or later on a weekend is your best bet or if you can go on a weekday you’ll avoid the weekend traffic.
Take snacks and water. Kids love to eat and drink and there’s nothing there, other than toilets which are available at the beginning of the Falls Walks or at the Morialta Playground.
There are some good sealed paths for prams, as well as off the beaten track paths for hikers. Plenty of options for families of all sizes, ages and fitness levels.
The Falls Valley Walk (45 mins) is best for younger kids and is stroller accessible.
The Falls Plateau Hike/Giants Cave (2 hours) is fine for those with active kids or older ones.
The Three Falls Grand Hike (3.5 hours) is a longer more challenging one made for bigger kids, longer walks or activities taking longer. It visits all three of the waterfalls in Morialta Conservation Park.

Finding a park in the carpark can be tricky when it’s busy. You can alternatively park on Stradbroke Road before the Morialta Falls Road entrance but be aware it adds around 1.5km each way to the beginning of the falls walks.
Look up! Koalas are plentiful. We saw 6 in one morning recently and lots of other wildlife too.
If you make it to the end and you still have some energy to burn make sure you check out the fantastic Morialta Nature playground and there are also some great little cubby houses built around trees that are great for kids to play in or build further.
