Moderate track
Starting from the end of Behana Gorge Road, Aloomba, this walk takes you to the Clamshell and Whites Falls via a paved & sealed trail that follows the water pipeline. Take in the scenery as the straightforward trail removes the worry for getting lost. Then find yourself at the peaceful falls cascading over the granite boulders, forming multiple rock pools that you can swim in. The water is usually cold, refreshing and crystal clear. You don’t need to get to the end to enjoy the beautiful green waters of Behana Creek, as there are various spots for you to cool off along the way. Keep an eye out for little yabbies around water. Expect a mostly shaded walk in an eucalypt forest. The area tends to be busy on the weekends. Watch out for snakes. 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.
