Hi all, apologies if there is already a topic for this but I couldn't find one and found it a little hard to navigate these forums and a lot of posts haven't been replied to since 2016 etc..
anyhoo.. having said that I just joined and happy to use this site. I am a very casual now and then bushwalker and have done most of my walking throughout Springbrook
I have done Purlingbrook Falls and Warringah pools (First did Purlingbrook back in the day before it was closed and you could walk behind the waterfalls) Natural Arch, Best of All, Rainbow Falls..
Anyhoo I have always wanted to do Warrie circuit but last time I was there just over a year ago it said it was closed. And I thought it was still closed? But some here have posted comments that have just recently done it.. and one person said it is still technically closed but on the national parks website couldn't see a notice that it was still closed?
Well in any case it seems it can be done now and one of the parts that excites me about it being able to go to the base of Goomoolahra Falls as I have only ever seen it from the top at the picnic area and always thought it looked nice at the base.. so I just have a few questions about the circuit
A lot of people have said they have done it in an anti clockwise direction going from Tallanbana towards Rainbow falls direction.. honestly I thought this was the general way to do the track anyway? Officially the track passes over the top of Twin falls circuit so this is the only falls you wouldn't see on the track which I dont mind because I've been to this falls many times..
But just wondering however as I have never completed the Twin falls circuit, going further along past Canyon Lookout and to Blackfellow falls.. If I was to do the official Warrie circuit, I would pass by Blackfellow falls but not Canyon lookout as it goes back over the top of Twin Falls again..
So what I would like to know is, if I did the Warrie circuit, I was thinking to extend it after I do Blackfellow falls and double back so I could come down the lower section of Twin Falls circuit so I could do Canyon lookout.. Is this worth it if you have never been? Or is it much the same view as you get from the Canyon lookout from the road?
As i said I have never completed the full twin falls circuit going past Twin Falls base to Canyon lookout and Blackfellow falls and back along the top of Twin Falls so with either option if I do Warrie circuit, I am going to miss one of these sections of track? (the section from the Twin Falls base to Canyon and Blackfellow or the section from Blackfellows back along over the top of Twin Falls) so which one would be worth doing once I do Blackfellow falls on the circuit?
One last thing is that I saw Jess mention recently doing the Warrie circuit and when they came to the meeting of the waters wasn't sure which way to go but according to all the maps I have seen, there are forks or diversions on this part of the track or in fact any part of the track except the junctions near Blackfellow and Twin Falls.. or are the maps a but incorrect and there are some forks/junctions in some places?
