Watch spectacular Josephine Falls tumbling over giant granite boulders on this short walk through the lush tropical rainforest of Wooroonooran National Park, 75 kilometres south of Cairns. The Falls are part of Josephine Creek which flows from Bartle Frere, Queensland's highest mountain.
You can access Josephine Falls by turning off the Bruce Highway 2 kilometres south of Mirriwinni and driving 8 kilometres to Josephine Falls. From the car park it is a 15 minute walk along the boardwalk to platforms where you get an excellent view of the Falls. Wheelchair access is available to the viewing platform at the top pool and stairs lead to the bottom pool.
Join the locals for a dip in the icy cold waters of the bottom pool and warm up on the massive granite boulders after your swim. Always check the weather conditions as rain on the mountains can cause flash flooding, making this area unsafe for swimming.
