The Simpson Falls, a cascade waterfall on the West Ithaca Creek, is located within the Mount Coot-tha Forest, in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The Mount Coot-tha Forest is approximately 1,500 hectares (3,700 acres) of open eucalypt forest forming the south-eastern part of D'Aguilar National Park. These two areas make up a 30,000-hectare (74,000-acre) forest that extends into suburban Brisbane. It is home to powerful owls, goshawks, eagles, wrens and robins as well as possums and bats. Visitor facilities in the forest include picnic tables, barbecues and toilets. The forest may be approached from Sir Samuel Griffith Drive or Gap Creek Road, Mt Coot-tha. Limited parking is available. The area is popular with birdwatchers, who can see white-throated treecreeper, variegated fairy-wren, powerful owl, rose robin and varied sittella.

Nice picnic / barbecue area with ample grassy area for a small game of backyard cricket or similar. It looks almost purpose built for small gatherings or a park birthday. The walk is lovely for young families and fur babies. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Nice little walk there, quite easy but probably wear shoes and no thongs.

A wonderful place for a picnic or bbq. Amenities include covered BBQS and tables and toilets. A great trail network for hiking and MTB.

Lovely shady hike up to the falls, with plenty of car parking and picnic space at the bottom. The view from the falls includes, in the distance, the city - quite magical. Not too busy, and worth a visit.
