Killen Falls - waterfall and nature walks


Surrounded by foliage that drapes itself over the damp rock walls, Killen Falls will have you feeling like you are in your own hidden paradise as you listen to the crashing waterfall.

Killen Falls is home to one of the last standing remnants of the big scrub rainforest. The big scrub rainforest that once blanketed the Northern Rivers before the cedar-getters cleared most of this forest. It is significant to the region so it is very important that you respect the area and take your rubbish home with you.

The Killen Falls viewing platform is a 660 metre return walk. The base of the falls is a 1km return walk from the car park area. The walk is a grade 3 bush walk and bush walking experience is recommended as the track is steep. Suggested duration of visit: 1 hour including picnicing time.

Stay on track, stay safe and protect our rainforest.

Killen Falls Reserve is located on Killen Falls Drive, Tintenbar, New South Wales, about a 20 minute drive from Ballina, off Friday Hut Road. 

  • Parking is VERY limited at the site and not suitable for large vehicles, caravans and motorhomes.
  • Swimming is NOT recommended due to variable water quality and protection of wildlife.

Visit Emigrant Creek Dam viewing area to enjoy where the dam meets the river.
