  • Driving from Cairns to Townsville we stopped in here for a break. Swimming area near parking lot - good to cool off but not really scenic. Paced trail through rainforest to get a view of Devil's Pool....  more »

  • What a wonderful place. The area is very well looked after with beautiful maintained gardens with barbeque's and undercover areas for a get together. The walk up to the Boulders lookout is great. Swim...  more »
  • Much quieter than Josephine Falls. The council have recently renovated the whole area and done a great job with wheelchair access all the way down to the water. There‚Äôs a large open water area safe for the little ones, amenities right at the top, and no long walk before you get there. The car park is 100m away. There is also a picnic area right there too
  • Spectacular place to visit. The main pool is safe but not really that interesting. Seeing the water flow over the boulders from the safety of the lookout was amazing.
  • Awesome swimming hole. Very cold and refreshing. The only down side is that it can become very busy in season as tourist buses go there
  • Great swimming spot to cool down. You can swim, jump off rocks, trees, chill.. big BBQ area and family friendly.
  • Amazing swim spot. Water is cold year round. No crocs here. Spacious. Toilets. No cons about this place.
