  • Absolutely amazing place. The beauty of this area is unmatched. The water was cool but was a relief after the hike to the end. Will definitely be back

  • Nice walk to a great water hole for a cool swim. Near Redlynch. Beautiful scenery. Some stairs. Bring wet shoes or walking shoes

  • A 25 min drive out of Cairns CBD to find a neat swimming hole just at the base of the Falls. Mind you the fish here are not shy, they'd swim right beside you too. Plenty of parking available with public toilets & change room. I highly recommend getting some reef shoes as the rocks and pebbles in the water are quite sharp. We got ours at Big W for $8! Cheap and very effective 👌 and you can use them to chase more waterfalls.
  • Lovely hike up the mountain with my 3 year old son and wife. It was springing with rain which added to the rainforest experience. After the hike, we went for a swim in the waterfall. Such an amazing experience watching the fish swim by while we lazed around. Definitely a must while visiting Cairns.
