Josephine Falls Walking Track
30 Minutes / 1.2 Kilometres



Description

Josephine Falls walking track is located within Wooroonooran National Park.

Josephine Creek begins as a trickle high on the south-east side of Bartle Frere, Queensland's highest mountain. By the time it reaches Josephine Falls, the trickle has become a substantial creek, which at times turns into a raging torrent. Tumbling over granite boulders, it forms the picturesque Josephine Falls.

Wheelchair access is available to the viewing platform at the top pool. The track has an easy grade and takes about 30 minutes walking time. Access to the top section of the falls is prohibited. Serious injuries and deaths have occurred here.
