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

Very pretty spot. Lovely walk to the top for some great views & photo opportunities.. Not too difficult a walk ..but walking shoes recommended. Nice pools to swim if the weather was warm enough

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 :)

Very pretty spot not far from the Ville. Good nat park camping with composting loos (don't park too close, bit pongy). Shaded camping for quite a few. Nice spot not far from camp ground for swimming/paddling, and a walk takes you to the falls. Not a tough walk. I haven't done it, but those who have reckon it's not hard... More

We camped at the national park site just up the road and came here for a walk and swim. Easy walk up to the viewpoint providing you had a moderate level of fitness. Nice boulder scrambling to get up to the rock pools, and lots of places to jump in. Water was cold in July! Beautiful place to visit.road to... More

Actually a little over an hour drive from Townsville! Once you leave the highway it’s about a 6km drive over sealed and unsealed roads. At the trail head there’s plenty of parking and signage detailing the route ahead. The first portion of the walk is relatively easy as it follows a dirt trail along the stream then down across the...

The Jourama falls are simply beautiful. Although you have to hike a bit and definitely need to be fit to get to the upper parts of the falls (there is no stairs or way), it is definitely worth it!

Scary drive as roads are winding and narrow but well worth drive. Our hired car is now thinking it is well above its rating!!!

This is purely for Trip Advisor information - Jourama Falls is much closer to Ingham Qld than Townsville and a local from Townsville would not consider it as being in Townsville. Please check location and relist correctly as Ingham Qld as you are confusing visitors who think it is just near Townsville but in fact they really need to travel... More

Stopped here overnight with a caravan. There are two causeways to cross to get to the campground but our 2WD 20' van didn't have any problems. Don't take your van past the campground though. Walk up to the top car park to do the walk up to the lookout. The rock pools are a fantastic place to swim, and there... More
