The Dinner Falls is a mix of three waterfalls that display plunge, segmented and cascade characteristics on the upper Barron River located in the Far North region of Queensland, Australia.

Location and features[edit]

The waterfall is located approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) south of Atherton on the Atherton Tableland near the Mount Hypipamee Crater in the Mount Hypipamee National Park.[3] The bottommost of the waterfall series is a long cascade fall; the middle section of the falls is a trio of segmented drops; while the uppermost section of the falls has a triangular shape as it plunges off the tableland plateau.[4]

Access to the falls is via a walking track.
