Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Crystal Cascades is an easy drive from Cairns or the northern beaches (about 25 min).
The carpark includes toilets and change rooms.
The paved path takes about 20 min to walk and is a gentle uphill incline.
Along the way there are stairs to access the waterfalls and swimming holes. We swam at the very end of the track at the main waterfall. We wore aqua shoes but it was still slippery, and despite being confident on the rocks, I had one big fall and was lucky to not break a bone! It’s a beautiful spot that’s really fun to explore but it is dangerous.
We couldn’t get right under the waterfall as the current was too strong.
In July the water was quite fresh but okay for swimming when you got used to it. Our kids wore wetsuits.

You could easily spend an afternoon here and not notice it, just resting in the waters or climbing up the rocks to reach the source waterfall.
With a larger area by the river, and a smaller one by the tracks through the forest, there's something for both large and small groups.
The water is clear and clean, and nothing nasty lurking below. You can sit back under the smaller falls and have it crash over your back and shoulders in almost all of the pools, and admire the picturesque forest around you.

Beautiful display of nature! It really is worth a visit! Walking track is very easy to follow and properly paved, there are two swimming holes which are just magnificent. Second swimming hole depths vary from knee deep to over 3 metres so better watch out if you are not a good swimmer. Two thumbs up for the unspoiled beauty!

Close to Cairns and a very popular spot. Even though the car park was overflowing when we arrived the cascades provided multiple little pools to cool off it that it wasn't crowded and we often had a swimming hole to ourselves! Clean amenities block in car park with toilets and change rooms. Easy, sealed walk to viewing areas and swimming holes. Calm spots to go swimming with a baby or young children.

Absolutely amazing place. The beauty of this area is unmatched. The water was cool but was a relief after the hike to the end. Will definitely be back

Nice walk to a great water hole for a cool swim. Near Redlynch. Beautiful scenery. Some stairs. Bring wet shoes or walking shoes

We visited the falls as we had a morning to relax. We took our togs and towels and walked up to we’re the falls are. It is a 20min walk with a gradual uphill gradient passing various areas to dip into the river.
At the end of the track the waterfall is in view and you can relax in the shade in between dips in the river. There are a lot of rocks / bolders in the river so be careful negotiating them. Other than that, enjoy the warm fresh water and relaxed time in between busy excursions whilst in the area
