Must-see waterfalls in Queensland

Whether you’re looking for special scenery, a place to cool off after a hike, or somewhere peaceful for a picnic, there are loads of waterfalls in Queensland to enjoy. We’ve featured four waterfalls previously and here are four more you can visit.

Zoe Falls – Hinchinbrook Island

Think mountain peaks, long sandy beaches and the odd crocodile for good measure. Zoe Island towers above Zoe Bay and is one of the most visually spectacular islands on the east coast. The climb is steep, but the Zoe Falls have multiple falls and rock pools as well as stunning panoramic views. Go there by foot via the Thorsborne Trail or by kayak along the coast.

Barron Falls – Cairns

During the wet season, the falls are captivating at any angle. The water rages off the side of the cliff, showering the valley below in mist and rainbows. Take the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway up the valley for a view from one side of the gorge, and the Kuranda Railway back down for a view from the other.

Serenity Falls – Buderim

Located in Buderim Forest Park, this secluded oasis is only a short drive from the centre of the Buderim Village. The Serenity Falls are easily accessible and the water plunges into a beautiful rock pool. Serenity Bridge spans the lower part of the pool and lets you view the falls and the cave behind.

Millaa Millaa – Atherton Tablelands

The Atherton Tablelands is a lazy drive inland from Cairns. You’ll find a number of picturesque waterfalls, with the top pick being Millaa Millaa. It is surrounded by lush vegetation and offers excellent photo ops. After a stop here, continue on the Waterfall Circuit to visit Zillie and Ellinjaa Falls.
