We were not disappointed when we finally arrived at Josephine Falls. It is just spectacular and it was great for taking many photos. The place was full of people enjoying the water but we were told it is a dangerous place too and there have been many deaths. You just have to be sensible and enjoy the place and the views.

Get there early before the tourist buses overwhelm the modest swimming hole. Love the fact it is a quick drive in from the highway. beautiful scenery and clean, refreshing mountain waters. Lush rainforest surrounds make the location a must see in TFNQ.

Loved Josephine Waterfalls. It had a wonderful swimming hole including rocks to slide down.
Easy path to walk in, great look put spots
Note you have to climb over rocks to get to swimming hole - these can be slippery

Josephine falls is worth every step you take, This was on our last day in Cairns and on every other tour we took during the week every one was talking about it how beautiful this place was so we had to check it out and yes and words can't explain this place with its natural waterslide and great swing hole it is definitely worth the trip.

Josephine falls was a fun place to play. The water was of course freezing but my two boys (11 and 8) loved the natural waterslide and climbing over the boulders. The walk in is very nice but would be difficult at the falls themselves if you had any stability or mobility issues.

Fantastic set up and sealed paths to the lookouts and access to water. Little bit hard to access the water if you’re not particularly mobile, as you have to climb over rocks, but really beautiful spot

This is located south of Cains. Easily accessible by any vehicle. We saw few tourists heading to this place just to soak in the pristine waters cascading down the falls. There are very slippery surfaces where on can fall and injure and then get trapped or washed away. There are warning notices displayed here due to past incidents causing even death.
