Walking Morialta with Kids – our top tips

Discover, Outdoor Adventures, Regional Features

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.

  • I recently got back from a 10 day holiday on the Hawaiian island of Oahu with my 3 year old daughter, my sister and her 13 year old son. We stayed at the Sheraton in Waikiki and hired a car so got to see quite a bit of the island. If you're ok with driving on the other side of the road I'd definitely recommend a car so you can escape Waikiki for a few days and see the other beautiful spots Oahu has to offer. There are LOADS of activities and places to visit on Oahu, these are just a few of my top tips for visiting Hawaii with kids. If you need any recommendations or other tips, please feel free to comment below and I'll try my best to answer. 1. Beaches - obviously one of the best parts of Oahu and Hawai'i is the beaches, but you need to be careful of strong rips and big beach breaks at a lot of them. If you've got younger kids and looking for a nice safe spot to swim check out Ala Moana Beach Park Hanauma Bay Diamond Head Cliffs Beach Kualoa Beach Park Kailua Beach or Waimea Bay…
