Information

The falls are situated at the foot of the southern face of Mount Bartle Frere in the Wooroonooran National Park. They descend from the Atherton Tableland at an elevation of 192 metres (630 ft) above sea level in the range of 150–300 metres (490–980 ft) near a popular recreation site where the water flows over a large rock to form a natural waterslide on Josephine Creek, a tributary of the Russell River.Access to the falls is via a short walk from the carpark which is also the start of the Bartle Frere multi day hiking trail. This carpark can be reached via a sealed road off the Bruce Highway between Babinda and Innisfail. The natural rock slide can be dangerous and the occasional flash flooding occurs without warning, with a sudden increase in the water volume.Josephine Falls is 75km south of Cairns. Turn right off the Bruce Highway 2km south of Miriwinni and drive 8km to Josephine Falls. Access is suitable for conventional vehicles.
