If you love to throw on your bathers, this is the place to see. Wow, was the first impression of the gorge. The sound of the water rushing pass, the smell of the fresh air, the gorgeous forest backdrop. Swimming in the fresh water is refreshing and a relief from the very hot, humid weather. The water is so clear, take goggles if you can, to watch the fish swim below, they don't seem afraid of people, you can almost touch them.
There were lots of people when we got there, around 2pm. Road leading down to the gorge is unsealed and narrow in certain parts, parking is a little restricted. We waited on the left side for about 10 minutes for parking to become available. Like most parts of Northern QLD should bring some insect repellent as there are a few march flies around.
Still I think if you want to cool off and enjoy fresh water swimming and a forest back drop, it's worth the wait.
