What a glorious spot - and in winter the temperatures would have been pleasant too. Now? Shudder.
Be rather hot now in the wet, and the falls would be just awesome to see.There were table and chairs with shading outside the gate - so one could eat there if one wished.
I guess that is one of the falls you can see from the chairlift. There would be a lot more water in the wet season.
I don't think it is Andrew as didn't see any chairlift above or near above but it's in the vicinity of Barron Gorge and falls. Heaps of water flowing in the wet I expect. Did see photos recently of the falls at Barron Gorge.
waterfall is a masterpiece of nature

Interesting---- And those mother in law tongues! Scary thought!
Ha! 'Tis a scary one about mother in laws tongues :)
Some of the creeks or the waterfalls have swimming areas.Great fun in the sun of the tropics.Some of the pools off the beaten tracks are "skinny dipping places" ( ha ha)CheersGreat report and photos Margaret.Colin"Erina Fair" Shopping complex/Mall (Huge) and Library
Yes they do have swimming areas and there are fish in some of them. Can't swim at Surprise Falls or anywhere near there.You are getting about then..
This is some rugged country.
Beautiful and rugged.
This is really fantastic. Thank you for the show-around.
You are welcome.
I would love to live near a waterfall such as that one and hear the trickling of water all day. It's a beautiful area.
It is beautiful and I can imagine you wanting to listen to water :)
water falls are so fascinating to me!!! this road leading to power station and waterfall is really beautiful .You captured the whole view beautifully .take care and have safe travelling dear friend!
It's all different that area with the heat in winter time to what I'm used to. It's a beautiful area. Thanks baili
You7 travelled a long long way, beautiful scenery.
'Tis a very long way from home, but it's fun even if seen before by us...this was our 3rd visit to Cairns.
The waterfall is beautiful and I can imagine that after the rains it is even more awsome.
Saw a video recently of the recent rains at the same place, magnificent.
mil tongue...good name. I can dig them up fast enough
Beautiful! What is that structure alongside the road behind the low clearance sign?
It's there to help stop the rocks from falling onto the road and cars - it'r for safety.
Long way, to reach a beautiful destination
Sure was a long way to go.
Great waterfall, it would be stunning in the wet season.Merle.........
Beautiful by the video I saw of it recently.
Incredible photos. I love waterfalls. Yes, you were a long way from home!
Thanks Mildred.Always lovely to listen to waterfalls.
A bit of a surprise, but I never got to go there! We used to have lots of mother-in-laws' tongues growing in our garden when I was a kid; and we had them growing in our garden in our first house in Sunshine Beach...and also in Brisbane. I've not seen any for a while now.
Waterfalls are lovely they are all different yet similar.Used to grow mother in laws tongues inside down here. Expect they have gone out of fashion.
What a lovely landscapes and the waterfall looks very nice. I love all the green there.
Always green there as far as I know, all season.
So green and beautiful!
It is Sussi.
You sure were a very long way from home!Fantastic photo's, my favourite is your first one.All the best Jan
Was very far from home, but an adventure.
How tall does that Mothers In Laws Tongues grow?
They can grow two to three feet tall Sandra.
Bom dia, as belas fotos mostram na perfeição toda a beleza do local. AG
Thank you and it is a lovely place.
Absolutely beautiful country. I am sure that everyone who sees your pictures is seized by the desire to go there.
Thanks.Well I presume my photos might help in some way.
How beautiful, and what a poetic name. It must have been quite a climb to get there.
It didn't seem to bad to walk as in climb, I didn't notice it that much which is unusual for me..
1. Spectacular, I would love to visit and photograph the falls.
We were the only ones taking photos.
I did laugh at the name of that plant. Is that really what it is called?
yes, the common name is Mother in law's tongue because the plant is long like a tongue and if it's gets wagging it won't stop! :) like a mother in law - well only a few :)
