We didn't travel far from the car park due to rain and time restrictions. And we were lucky that there were hardly any others there (I'd imagine it would be less picturesque when crawling with visitors). But the scenery is very pretty. It's worth the...More

We called into the boulders on our way back from Josephine Falls. The water is so crystal clear and the walking tracks give access to some amazing rock formations . Highly recommended!

We visited this place about 40 years ago and it was wonderful to see the changes. Good parking, paved walkway to the swimming area and great paths and viewing platforms to see the boulders. It was well worth stopping by again. Well done to parks...More

Visited on a damp tropical day. The walk to see pool and river rapids is easy and great views as well as wonderful rainforest. Well worth the short detour off Bruce Highway.
