  • Lovely easy walk with little swimming spots along the way to the top. While this isn't the most spectacular waterfalls you will ever see, for the easy paved 1.2km walk it's an proportionate reward I think. Great for kids and adults alike.
  • Great spot to swim and walk. Very quiet during August-September months. Short way from North Cairns.
  • Beautiful swimming holes, clean, fresh water. Easy walk along the path. Interesting trees and mountain views above the creek. Beautiful place.
  • Awesome spot for a dip. The water was freezing during winter after a bit of rainfall - but still refreshing
  • Nice place to go for a swim. If you are local there are other less touristy places close by.
