I walked with a group of friends and we did the full 10km loop. There were a few hazards after recent rain but nothing we couldn't manage. The longer of the two tracks takes you past smaller falls and the views are beautiful Nandroya falls...More

Absolutely beautiful falls to visit! It was a little hard to find, due to no signage. You'll find Henrietta Creek camp ground, and about 150 meters from the camp ground, you will see a small sign to the walking track to Nandroya Falls. We went...More

Today we tortured two seven year olds and one 14 year old by extracting them from their ipads and hiking to Nandroya Falls. It was raining slightly so was slippery but we did the round trip in abt two hours, including time for swimming. Fabulous...More

We are locals, so have done this walk a number of times over the years. It is a beautiful set of falls - don't rush the walk. Walk all around the area, including onto the lower part of the falls - beautiful from whichever angle...More

The walk was moderate to strenuous if you take the longer track(4km). Took us about an hour and we passed a few other little waterfalls which were very pretty (make sure you wear good footwear). The other track which is just under 2km and is...More

I am very surprised that this waterfall is not more well-known, with only a small sign marking the falls from the highway. The falls are amazing, dropping about 50 metres over two drops, with the upper tier being perfect for a swim. The walk in...More

Another FNQ beauty. This waterfall (one of numerous in the Cairns/Innisfail/Millaa Millaa area) is a bit of the main tourist radar, but it’s a corker.  Head toward Millaa Millaa from Innisfail along the Palmerston Highway and the falls are about halfway between the two. The...More
