Wallaman Falls
   Queensland, Australia

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Wallaman Falls are erroneously cited as Australia's tallest waterfall. This is not the case, but it is Australia's tallest perennial single drop. In any case, Stony Creek, a tributary of the Herbert River, meanders through a rainforest plateau before making a dramatic 879' (268m) plunge off an escarpment in the Seaview range into a deep green gorge.

Our thoughts

Australia might have taller waterfalls than Wallaman, but that's not to suggest that this waterfall is anything less than spectacular. The waters make a clear drop of 879' (268m) down into a deep gorge. Aerial imagery shows Stony Creek makes a couple of short drops above the falls, and several more below the falls. These additional falls might account for the exaggerated height figure of 1115' (340m), but we can't legitimately include these in the height of Wallaman Falls.

Photography tips

Wallaman Falls is clearly visible from top to bottom. The falls face northeast and are in a deep, but wide gorge. Afternoon shadows could pose some problems for photography, but if you visit during midday, the falls will be completely illuminated on a sunny day. During rainy season, the falls are often misty or partially obscured. The trail to the base of the falls will yield spectacular, albeit foreshortened perspectives.
