QLD Cairns - Josephine Falls National Park

Rugged mountains, wild rivers and lush tropical rainforest make Wooroonooran National Park in the Bellenden Ker Range one of the state’s most scenic parks. Queensland’s highest mountains, Mt Bartle Frere (1622m) and Mt Bellenden Ker (1592m), are in this park in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Tropical rainforest grows from the foothills to the summit of the mountains. Many species of plants and animals are found here and nowhere else, including Leptospermum wooroonooran and the Bartle Frere skink.


Josephine Falls is 75km south of Cairns. Turn off the Bruce Highway 2km south of Miriwinni and drive 8km to Josephine Falls
