Mapleton Falls is a national park near the town of Mapleton on the Blackall Range in South East Queensland, Australia, 95 km north of Brisbane. The falls are part of Pencil Creek and drop 120 metres.[1]

The waterfall became a forest reserve in 1938 and then in 1973 it was declared a national park.[2]

The Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk is a long-distance walking track which passes through the park. There are a number of smaller walks as well.[1]
