If the rating was based on the environment only I would give it 5 stars however there were a couple of issues. Information states that the park is well signposted and once you are on a track it is. Signposting to get to parking bays to get onto the tracks are very poor. We did the base walk at Minyon...
Protestor Falls are situated within the Western end of Nightcap National Park and is not accessible from the Minyon Falls area that is located at the South/ Eastern area of the park.
It is a totally different rainforest environment, compared to the later if you have visited the here first.

It was 1979, people were angry, people who didn’t want to lose something. The oft despised Greenies were out in force, a forest was in peril, 300 year old blackbox and brushbox trees were listed to be cut down and 300 protesters dug in for starters.

Great amenities for a picnic/bbq. Walking track to Protester Falls in top condition. It's a short walk from car park to top of falls. Huge reward for very little effort.
Note: keep an eye out for the numerous carpet pythons on access road in, especially early autumn.
