Station Creek flows into Waterview Creek well above Jourama Falls and The Black Hole. On this loop, you can either start off at Jourama Falls car park and walk up the Paluma Dam to Jourama Falls Track to Station Creek or hike in from Paluma Dam (car shuttle required).
At the junction of Station Creek and this trail are old mining remains so make sure you check them out.
A few large granite boulders are scattered throughout Station Creek keeping it interesting and scenic. As usual, be aware of stinging trees (Gimpie Gimpie).
Here's the map of the loop. Note, that you can also start from Paluma Dam.
This trip is best done with rappelling as it's not easy to get around the cliffs above The Black Hole. It is possible to navigate around the falls and exit via the Black Hole Track - beware of Gimpie Gimpie.
