A great place to stop for a swim, see the natural beauty the Capricorn coast has to offer. Better than Mossman Gorge as you can come and go as you please, no need to pay additional costs.

Reminded me of Mossman Gorge so if you’ve seen that don’t make an extra trip. We did the waterfall trail around ATHERTON Tablelands but due to no rain for 5 months sadly not as good as in the wet season.

Josephine is quite fine. You can swim in designated areas or if you just want to go for a quick stroll you can. Beautiful view of the waterfall from the walking track.
