Josephine Falls is one of the many waterfalls in North Queensland and is perhaps one of its most famous. Home to a natural waterslide, it's a favourite for those looking for unique experience and want to see the beauty of Northern Queensland. After a short bush walk to the falls, visitors can make their way up the rocks and try their hand at going down the waterslide, made by nature and a fun way to experience it! The smooth rock and cool pool below make for an awesome ride that will have you going back for more.
The waterfalls themselves have been featured in several TV commercials and are well known in the area, not only for the waterslide, but for the crystal clear, cool waters.
Josephine Falls are about 75km away from Cairns and makes for a easy day trip from the city, and the easy walk into the falls makes it perfect for the whole family! It's a perfect nature escape and the views alone are worth the trip.
To reach the falls, you will need to aim for a small town named Mirriwinni and turn off at Mount Bartle Frere before driving another 8 kilometres to the falls themselves. It has parking as well as paved roads to make for an easy walk. The falls are open and accommodating to all the public with a BBQ area and walking tracks. It's easy to access on your own or through a tour company, with several visiting the area.
Please note that some places at the falls are restricted as the slippery rocks can and will make for dangerous footing. Always abide by the signs and make sure you stay in the allowed areas, for your own safety!
