Discover the Wonderland Range:

The majestic sandstone ridges of the Wonderland Range are over 430 million years old. Their leaning character and hard sandstone nature were formed after thick layers of sediments were intensely heated and folded and eventually thrust up from under the earth.

After years of weathering the Wonderland Range stands unique and inviting; it is a fantastic area to explore by foot. The diversity of spring wildflowers, wet weather waterfalls and rocky mountain peaks can be accessed from numerous walking tracks.

Detailed Hiking Trail Guide:

Once you arrive at Wonderland Car Park, look for this trail to the right of the carpark, away from the other hikes that are grouped together.

The hiking trail is generally quite flat with only a few rocky surfaces between.

Continue straight here along the main path.

Welcome to Turret Falls. There was not a lot of water on my visit.

When you are done relaxing at the falls, turn around and head back the way you came.

Scenic mountain to the right leading up to the Pinacle.

And back to the car park once again. Try hiking Splitters Falls or the Pinacle.
