  • Easy (paved) walk to waterfall. Ok place but nothing special. If you want to but of a workout then hike up to lake Morris.
  • Cool refreshing and beautiful What an amazing spot amongst the rainforest. POSITIVE Gorgeous scenery Has to be 5 degrees cooler than Cairns Water was refreshing Easy walk Bins and seats along a concrete path to water Well signed and easy to find Warning sign for stinging vine (excellent tip) Loads of parking Clean public toilets NEGATIVE Handicap sign faded and useless Female toilet door hard to lock Rubbish littered the natural beauty TIPS There are water holes all along the path Rocks can be slippery with moss Currents in parts not suitable for small children Deep in locations = Alert adult supervision 1.2 km to main waterhole / swimming area Plenty of stairs
  • Beautiful gem close the the Cairns city. Definitely worth the walk to the end.
  • Beautiful Cascades. Some spots for swimming, be careful with the slippery rocks though. Water can be a bit chilly but it is worth it!
  • Really beautiful and off the beaten track in Cairns. Only came a cross it by chance but really pleased we got there.
