Wonderful

Well worth the walk to the falls, nice picnic area with heaps of turtles in the water. Such great geology, the rocks are so amazing and the water is so clear.

A lovely little spot for a day trip from Townsville. Take a picnic or camping grounds available with basic amenities. The lookout walk is for moderately fit people. Not pram friendly but still great for kids in the lower areas.

Beautiful walk and wonderful waterfalls. Walk down to the first and waterfall by sticking to the right side of the rocks, and there is a second waterfall behind you can sit under. It's slippery so be careful. Go back to the first small waterfall pool, cross over the pool and head up around the front right side of the rocks... More

A short walk provides some nature experience. However, if it's not been raining recently don't expect much in the way of 'Falls'. IMHO, it's not worth the 90km drive from Townsville as a day trip. But if you're passing by on route to Cairns or Port Douglas then, yes, make the stop.

We have a 7 meter motorhome and got in easily. I would not try it in the wet season as there is a shallow causeway to cross. The camp is secluded and tranquil. Although the walk to the lookout is tough it is ok if you take your time. There is steps that are steep but there is seats to... More

Jourama Falls are located at the end of a walk through the scrub in Paluma National Park. The falls themselves are quite disappointing unless there has been a good downpour for a week of so. The start of the walk is very pretty walking across the creek on a man made track by the Rangers. You can swim all of... More

We go there often for a picnic. Good swimming. Turtles and fish are in wonderful natural habitat. A favourite place. Barbecues available too.

The best thing about the walk into the falls is that there are four areas and you can stop at any one feeling you have seen something worthwhile, if you are a limited walker then the first area has only a few steps. The walk has lots of pools and small waterfalls along the way, we took a little detour... More

About an hour and 15 minutes to drive to from Townsville, but well worth it. Keep in mind that it take an hour to do a round trip up to the falls look out and back so if your on a time budget make sure you account for that. Really breathtakingly beautiful :)
