Bloomfield Falls Walk

The walk to picturesque Wujal Wujal (or Bloomfield) Falls is a short stroll down a rocky path to a viewing point for the falls. The falls are especially spectacular after the wet season. Swimming is not advised due to the possibility of crocodiles in the Bloomfield River below the falls and Aboriginal cultural concerns

Bloomfield Falls

This is an easy 30 min return path walk of less than 1 km.

This is a place of great significance for the Kuku Yalanji people who have lived here for thousands of years, and although you can see the falls unaccompanied, the 30 minute tours offered by the Walker Family, traditional custodians of the area, will open your eyes to the surroundings and give you a better understanding of this beautiful area.

Guided Walk:

Wujal Wujal, With the Walker Family

The Walker Family, a close-knit group of wonderfully warm and friendly people, are members of the Kuku Yalanji clan who have lived in this area for tens of thousands of years. Their traditional lands are part of the beautiful World Heritage rainforest area, and encompass the Bloomfield Falls, after which Wujal Wujal is named. The Walkers will take you on a bush walk with a difference, giving you the opportunity to listen and talk to the traditional custodians of the area, and receive a fascinating insight into the history and the many different uses of plant species for food, medicine and ceremonial purposes. This is an opportunity to see the rainforest through their eyes, and to learn about the cultural significance of this area.
