Ponytail Falls

Nestled in the rainforest along the Tully River, Ponytail Falls is the perfect place to spend those hot, humid days. There’s two ways to reach Ponytail Falls – drive or raft. By car, follow the river downstream from Cardstone Weir and look out for the number 11 painted on the road. For a more adrenaline-pumping mode of transport, try white-water rafting and admire the falls from the embankment overlooking the falls.

With its diverse wilderness and abundant national parks, Tropical North Queensland is home to many beautiful waterfalls and swimming holes. It’s important to always follow the advice from Queensland Parks and never venture into out of bounds areas, flooded waters or dangerous areas to prevent serious injury or death.
