JIM JIM FALLS

Being the biggest waterfall in all of Australia, not visiting this site is the biggest sin. Along with the Jim Jim waterfall another leading attraction is the sister of this fall, called the Twin Falls which is nearby the Jim. Flow down to the falls during the monsoon and the tropical summer months because that’s when the falls are at its peak. Even without the falls the place is a gorgeous place to find yourself at. A boulder-ful walk will lead you to the waterfall which is a bit of a tough climb but worth every step towards the fall. You will be hopping, jumping from boulder to boulder and even at some point be on all four to climb so carrying a walking stick is not the smartest idea out there. If you are feeling less adventurous, there is always a 4WD that leads to the waterfall or if you don’t mind spending some greens, take an overview of the whole place with a plane. After a rough navigation, the fall and beach will welcome you with pristine surrounding.
Pro-Tip: Wear climbing shoes and carry enough water and food and watch out for some fresh water crocs.

Unlike the Jim Jim Falls, Wangi won’t give you a lot of watery trouble since this place is the best place for picnic with your family. All age group will enjoy themselves here as there is a place for every age group here with cafes, souvenir shops and hangout spots. Take out some fresh meat as there is also arrangements for a good BBQ session here with convenient toilets and other necessities. Take a swim in the almost perfectly round-shaped pool, shower under the waterfall.
Pro-Tip: Don’t forget to try the mango cheesecake at the cafes in the Wangi Fall, as it said to be an amazingly delightful dish to try there.

An amazing formation of granite boulders which has an unusual shade of turquoise in the waters makes it look very mesmerizing and hence, this place is the place for social media addicts because the shutters of your cameras are going to need a rest after clicking so many pictures. Talk about natural slides because this waterfall has boulders formed in a way that you could easily slide over them from pool to pool. The best part is that this place is located between the rainforest so it is very much like finding Narnia in between a closet of rainforest here. Car parks are available and picnic spots are close to the parking area and the waterfall is barely 800 metres from the car park.
KING GEORGE FALLS

This is one of the falls that is best enjoyed from above so that your eyes could digest the whole view of the place. Falls ranging from the height of 80 to 100 metres, this one isn’t the kind of waterfall that you slide into. This place is best enjoyed when you have a bird’s eye view in a helicopter on the whole majestic sandstone waterfall. The view might also include the wildlife since you’re passing above them. The helicopter drops you on the top of the fall where you can enjoy the shallow waters of the fall on the top. The view can also be enjoyed with a boat journey towards this place. Since this is also a remote place, access is possible through the expedition cruises or flights.
NATURAL BRIDGE AND MORAN FALLS

This is one of the prettiest waterfalls you could come across in Australia not only because of the waterfall but also because of the things that surround it. The Natural Bridge is a rock formation that has formed into an arch shape due to the force of the waterfall. While you are at it, you can take a nocturnal tour with other tour companies and witness the nearby colony of glow-worms and the micro-bats. This place is so lit that you can also find luminous fungi and fireflies. If you are done with this tour don’t forget to drop in at the O’Reilly rainforest and falls. This is one of the best places to sit down and watch the sunset while chilling by the fall.
