Such an aesthetically pleasing spot (great photo op)! As you emerge through a short walk through the rainforest, watch as the fast flowing tropical creek beside you flows over huge boulders. The water is sometimes suitable for swimming, but on my tour we were advised against it as the water gets pretty rough. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful spot!
I would describe this spot as Cairns’s natural playground – it’s honestly so much fun! It is pretty much a huge slip and slide, but surrounded by rainforests and completely natural – cool huh!? The guide will make you aware of the slippery rocks, so go steady and you’ll have a great time. The water is absolutely freezing, but just brave it – find a spot and jump on in. If you swim on over to the ‘slide’ there are submerged rocks under the water that you can hoist yourself up on, then climb up the non-slippery sides to the top, get your camera on selfie mode and slide on down!
TOP TIP: If you are bringing a camera/GoPro, make sure to tie it around your wrist – I unfortunately dropped mine and lost it under the water! [Side note] Luckily, as we were leaving the site, one of the other tour guides dived down and found it for us! It’ll always be a mystery how he found it, but thank you Aussie tour guide!
