This hike has a near constant and relentless grade all the way up and down. Beautiful views on the way up and at the top with good tree cover. Be prepared to use your hands on occasion, though nothing is technical. Show more

Wonderful easy hike to the top of Windin Falls. Small pool to wade / plunge at end right on top of the falls makes for the perfect natural horizon pool. Show more

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 39 m
This trail features the beautiful Clamshell Falls cascading along the Behana Creek into deep green pools, that supply Cairns with fresh rainforest water. The granite gorge is a sight to see all year round, with swimming holes and great views. The trail itself is in riparian eucalypt forest and is an undulating sealed road which can be quite steep in some places. The length of the trail follows a water pipe parallel to Behana Creek.Show more

Length: 6.2 mi • Est. 3 h 38 m
One of the most beautiful, remote and adventurous-to-get-to waterfalls in the region. Track is very overgrown, very steep in sections and should only be undertaken by very experienced hikers with navigational equipment as in extended sections there is no trail and one must navigate through bush. Reward is worth it as the swimming and views at the waterfall are exceptional. Show more

2 hikes from Henrietta Creek Campground. The northern loop is to Nandroya Falls and the Southern out and back is to Tchulpala Falls. The northern Nandroya Falls track is in better condition, w the southern to Tchulpala is a little more adventurous, requiring 2 creek crossings (one a knee high wade). Falls are very different from one another and certainly worth the hike to both, however Nandroya is arguably the more spectacular of the two.Show more

This historic trail used to serve gold miners arriving on the coast as a means of getting to the gold mining region in the Goldsborough Valley. The trail could be walked from either end and terminates at the the Babinda Boulders day use area and campground in the south, and the Goldsborough Valley day use area and campground in the North, which both reside within National Parks. From the north, the first 9km of the trail is a well maintained vehicle track, however a gate prevents vehicle access. This section is shared use for both mountain biking and hiking, and after 9km a basic campground exists with a fire pit and cleared area for tents. Bookings for this campground need to be made via the QLD National Parks website. Just after the campsite is a long causeway that crosses the Mulgrave River and in the dry season is about mid-calf depth. The cement and aggregate causeway can be sharp on bare feet thus for comfort flip flops or sandals are recommended but not essential. Approximately 2km past the causeway the wide vehicle track meets a creek crossing and from this point becomes a single width footpad. There are 4 creek crossings over the next 1km at this point that all require boots off if you wish to keep them dry, thus it is recommended to wear flips flops / sandals. Water depth can be up to the knee. After the fourth crossing the boots can be strapped back on as the trail tends to be rocky and slippery. There are some steep climbs in places although they are not long. Once through the pass (about 6km's from Babinda) the trail begins to descend toward the coast and the walking becomes easier and less rocky. The trail terminates behind the playground at the Babinda Boulders carpark and the nearby river offers a wonderful place for a refreshing swim after the hike. Just up the road from the carpark is a free campground with toilets and non-potable water, which allows this trail to be backpacked from either end with a hiking tent, allowing a return hike the following day.Show more
