Truely spectacular waterfalls and refreshing swimming hole. Not easy to find, but well worth the effort! A great place to swim and cool off!

A little hard to find but definitely worth the effort. When you start the walk from your vehicle take the lower track it’s easier

As others have commented, the falls are a little difficult to find because of the sparse signage, the need for a 4WD for the final drive, and then the short, steep and difficult access to the falls. I agree that the view and the total environment when you get there are well worth the effort. I would simply add that if you are elderly or have mobility or balance problems, you will need to be careful and deliberate and may need assistance from others or from holding on to the trees. It is not a simple walk into the falls from the final car park.

We visited in the dry season and the first 12 km of the route from the Mulligan Highway were easy to drive on. We were driving an all-wheel drive, but a 2 WD would work fine. When you reach the point where the road turns into a one-lane rutted goat path (where you would need 4 WD), park your car and walk the rest of the way (see the attached picture of the sign that marks the end of the drivable road). It took us just 15 minutes to walk to the final car park area. From there it was a short walk up and across to the falls. We had the place to ourselves on a Sunday afternoon. It was beautiful and serene. We especially loved watching the blue Ulysses butterflies flutter over the pool.

After reading other reviews about the falls, we thought we should give it a go!!!! You definitely need a 4WD, as it is a dirt track, rocky in parts, and a few creek crossings. You follow the handmade signs to the falls (driving on the dirt road for approx 30-45 minutes). The last part is a short steep walk, where you are rewarded with the beautiful falls!!! The kids enjoyed a dip in the rock pools around the bend from the falls. We also enjoyed lunch here...a beautiful spot in FNQ.
