Description

This park features the stunning Blencoe Falls, where Blencoe Creek plunges 90 metres into a pool before cascading a further 230 metres to the bottom of Blencoe Gorge before joining the Herbert River in the spectacular Herbert River Gorge. Towering cliffs and rugged ridges are covered in open forest while vine-thicket rainforest scattered with hoop pines clads the gullies and upper slopes of the gorge.

Set up camp and enjoy the short walks and lookouts around Blencoe Falls. The gateway to the Wet Tropics Great Walk also starts here, with 110 kilometres of tracks including short and overnight walks. Blencoe Falls is remote and visitors must be self-sufficient. Take adequate communication equipment and be careful around cliffs, steep slopes and rock faces along the tracks and at the lookout.
