  • Crystal Cascades is one of those local staples in Cairns that is a must do for everyone. You park down the bottom and then walk up towards the waterfall at the end. Along the way there are stairs that lead to the creek where you can pick a spot to jump in. Be secluded or make friends. There are plenty of places to choose from and it's up to you where you want to go. Also a great place to discover wildlife.
  • Very tranquil, peaceful, and a relaxing atmosphere. A easy walk to see the spectacular waterfalls. Just be careful of the stinging trees. As long as you don't touch any of the trees you will have no problems
