Great place for a walk and swim. Definitely walk the 1.2km distance to the end. It only has a small incline and can be walked by people of all ages. At the end of the 1.2km footpath, there is an awesome water fall (see pictures)....More

A great walk through magnificent rain forest- we followed the cascades for a refreshing 25 minute walk watching the river make its waydown beautiful rocky rapids. Really recommend making the effort to see the Cascades.

A free surprise packet close to Cairns. A very relaxing, easy and picturesque walk. We found a quiet peaceful spot and had morning tea. The water was cold and refreshing. Take some dry crackers and feed the fish. Need to be initially patient but they...More

A lovely walk along the creek through the rainforest. A easy walk but plenty to see and there are stairs to go down to see the falls and water more closely.
