Behana Gorge Waterfall Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
When it comes to popular activities in Cairns, it’s the snorkeling, scuba diving, and Great Barrier Reef that often draw the most attention. Here at Behana Gorge waterfall, however, it’s obvious that Cairns has far more to offer than simply what’s out in the ocean. Once only known to Queensland locals, Behana Gorge has recently become a popular spot for visitors, who travel 35 minutes from Cairns to swim in the pools and splash in the water beneath the tumbling falls. The hike, however, is not for the timid, and a moderate degree of fitness is required to reach the falls at the end. Though the one-way distance is only 2 miles, expect to spend at least an hour on the steep, uphill trail, where the reward is the chance to swim beneath the falls and splash in the crystalline waters—enjoying a hidden corner of Cairns that very few visitors see.
The trailhead is located at the very end of rural Behana Gorge Road. When visiting in summer it’s best to start early to avoid the midday heat, and while jumping from rocks is extremely popular, be sure to use care on the slippery rocks and clambering around the banks.
Did You Know? While hiking up to the waterfall is a free, you can see even more of Behana Gorge on a guided canyoning tour, where you walk down the walls of Behana Gorge and get to approach the famous falls on a route that’s packed with adrenaline.
