A List of Must See Breathtaking Waterfalls in Cairns, Queensland - Picturesque views like none other!

Seriously, the waterfalls here look like something out of a storybook! It is absolutely breathtaking! Here are some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Cairns, Queenstown, that are definitely going to spellbind you!


Barron Falls

There's nothing quite like the raging stream of Barron Falls during the rainy season to humble you. It is unquestionably the largest of all the Cairns waterfalls, tumbling at 125 metres into a steep and rocky canyon. On your Kuranda tour, make sure to see the famous Barron Falls from the platform of the Kuranda Scenic Railway. Then use the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to fly over these magnificent cascades. Also, it is recommended to book accommodation with a brilliant view when in Cairns. For instance, you can check out hotel accommodation in Cairns the likes of Oaks Cairns Hotel for a cosy stay.


Millstream Falls

This massive waterfall, located just outside Ravenshoe, is the country's widest single-drop waterfall. Millstream Falls, which cascades over the brink of a column-shaped basalt lava flow, is well worth the journey! From the parking lot to the viewpoint, take in the breathtaking sceneries! Take a 700-metre trek to Little Millstream Falls when you are here. You won't regret it!


Mungalli Falls

Mungalli Falls, although being one of Cairns' highest waterfalls, is relatively obscure. This nature's wonder may be seen from several viewing points at the Mungalli Falls learning centre. It is recommended to take a stroll down to the falls' base and picnicking on the observation deck.


Josephine Falls

Josephine Falls, located in Wooroonooran National Park's beautiful rainforest, is a three-tiered waterfall that seems like it belongs in a fairy tale. This location is absolutely fantastic, with vibrant but clear waters and a plethora of rocks. There's also a natural waterslide to make your inner child very happy!


Zillie Falls

Zillie Falls is not really well-known, which is a shame, really! It's the magnificent cousin of Millaa Millaa Falls, which is just a stone's throw away. Although getting to the base of the falls is challenging, the view at the top is spectacular. Millaa Millaa, Zillie Falls, and the adjacent Ellinjaa Falls may all be found along this waterfall circuit.


Windin Falls

With a natural infinity pool overlooking a landscape of lush rolling hills, Windin Falls is a must-see attraction. Despite the fact that the base of this waterfall is unreachable, it is still a wonderful place to visit on its own.
The trek to Windin Falls is really not for the faint of heart, as you will soon discover!


Nandroya Falls

Nandroya Falls, which cascades down a massive moss-covered rock and plunge into a deep pool, is one of the most tropical waterfalls on the planet. The first tier of the river has a single drop while the second tier is larger and more expansive just downstream, providing lots of swimming holes to cool down in after a 3km trek. Consider stopping at the lesser Silver Falls for a much-needed water break and to cool yourself.
