Alexandra Bay Waterfall, Diwan
Trip Planner: Australia / Queensland / Daintree Region / Cape Tribulation / Diwan / Alexandra Bay Waterfall
Lose yourself in the heart of the world's oldest rainforest and follow a rocky creek upstream to Alexandra Bay Waterfall. Do not expect to find any signposts, since this is a real hidden gem well off the beaten tourist tracks. Wear sturdy shoes and watch your step, for you will be hopping across some slippery rocks. The return track takes at least four hours to complete, but the sight of a pristine waterfall and a rocky plunge pool below makes it worthwhile.
