Josephine Falls, Queensland, Australia


Address -: Josephine Falls ,Josephine Creek ,Far North region of Queensland, Australia


The Josephine Falls is a tiered cascade waterfall on the Josephine Creek located in the Far North region of Queensland, Australia.
The falls are situated at the foot of the southern face of Mount Bartle Frere in the Wooroonooran National Park. They descend from the Atherton Tableland at an elevation of 192 metres (630 ft) above sea level in the range of 150–300 metres (490–980 ft) near a popular recreation site as the water flows over a large rock to form a natural waterslide on Josephine Creek, a tributary of the Russell River.
Access to falls is via a sealed road off the Bruce Highway between Babinda and Innisfail. The natural rock slide can be dangerous and the occasional flash flooding occurs without warning, with a sudden increase in the water volume.
But if you want to enjoy the swiming in the falls you can its upon you.
  • Leave the water immediately if it changes colour or the water levels rise—these are signs of flash flooding.
  • Never jump or dive into water—there may be submerged objects.
  • Take care around steep slopes and rock faces along the track, and at lookouts.
  • Supervise children closely.
  • Stay on the track and take care on uneven surfaces, especially in wet conditions.
  • Protect yourself from the sun. Wear sunscreen, a hat and a long sleeved shirt, even on cloudy days.
