If you're a sucker for an Instagrammable waterfall, then you will be spoiled for choice in Tropical North Queensland. While every local will cheerfully pledge loyalty to a certain spot, there are particular waterfalls that are certified crowd-pleasers.

Tourism Tropical North Queensland

Josephine Falls is just a one-hour drive south of Cairns, with a short track providing access from the carpark. Along the way, there are three viewing platforms to admire the sparkling multi-level waterfall. If you are after even more adventure, Clamshell Falls at Behana Gorge might be more your speed. The three-kilometre hike from the carpark will lead you to a deep granite gorge filled with incredible tumbling waterfalls. Or, if you want to appreciate the falls without getting wet, soak in the sights from the viewing platforms at the immense Barron Falls, Tully Falls or Devil's Pool. If you do venture into the water, make sure you swim within designated swimming holes only to stay safe.
