Baxter Falls from Flaxton
2 h, 3 h 15 min to 2 days
Starting from the intersection of Flaxton Mill Road and Old Mill Lane, Flaxton, this walk takes you to the Baxter Falls via the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk track, visiting Flaxton Walkers Camp along the way. The lovely waterfall amidst the eucalypt forest is well worth the hassle, especially if you’re here to swim in the ice-cold water. Turtles may join you as you cool off and listen to the burbling sound of water, accompanied by birdsong. You’ll also have a good chance of seeing iguanas whilst making your way through the rainforest. Flaxton Walkers Camp offers a serene environment, and has flushable toilets and a water tank. There might even be toilet paper inside, but bring your own just in case. Also don’t forget to boil or filter the water in the tank(if there is water inside). The waterfall is best experienced after some decent rainfall. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
