Australia really does have some well looked after free destinations. You just need to hunt them out. The falls were free to visit, easy path access, clean-ish toilets and a nice picnic area with bin provided. The pools at the bottom made it perfect for...More

If the weather is nice, take swimmers and towel!! Pretty falls that are an easy, not too short, walk from the carpark. Three viewing areas and you can swim in the bottom pool. Definitely worth some time.

What a fantastic spot! The walk to the falls is only about 5 minutes and the swimming was fantastic for the children albeit a little too cool for the adults.

Absoultely beautiful, this is my favourite waterfall in NQ! Bring a picnic for lunch and make a day of it. You can slide down the big rock in the middle, easy water as well for kids.

8 kms off the Bruce Highway and a 700 metre stroll through the rainforest and you will see this beautiful waterfall. There is a car park, an amenities block and picnic area. The path to the falls is well maintained, with a few gentle gradients,...More

Beautiful cool swimming pools in the rainforest settings. Do remember to observe and follow the signs and watch out for flash flooding. We don't want to see you on the news stranded up some rock :)

What a place to visit and cool off when the day is hot. Gorgeous spot to enjoy swimming and the scenery is magnificent. Free parking, picnic area, toilets and a short walk to the falls so what more can you ask for

The falls are quite spectacular and if you are interested the swimming hole at the bottom looks great, Too cold for me, but then I'm not much of a swimmer. The surrounding Rainforest and the lovely walk to the falls are well worth your time.

Different viewing platforms give opportunity to appreciate the spectacular beauty of this natural landscape. Easy to get to and at least some of it accessible for wheelchair users.

Thank Sue B

We spent a good part of half a day. The walk itself is short but we spent a lot of time sliding down the rocks and swimming around. While crocs arent usually spotted in such fast moving water, keep your wits about you.
