Josephine Falls, Wooroonooran National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Josephine Falls is a scenic waterfall fed by rains falling on Queensland’s highest peak, Bartle Frere, which looms above this popular picnic area in Wooroonooran National Park.

Josephine Creek starts as a gentle trickle high on the south-east side of the summit of Bartle Frere. By the time it has travelled the 7.5 kilometres to the smooth granite boulders of Josephine Falls, it is a thundering torrent that will take your breath away.

Enjoy the 1.2 kilometre return walk through lush, world heritage-listed rainforest to viewing decks over the picturesque falls.

Stay clear of the restricted access area as serious injuries and deaths have occurred here. Penalties apply. Water conditions can be unpredictable and hazardous. Obey all safety signs and only swim in the designated area.
