Alexandra Bay Waterfall, Diwan

5.0
#7 of 7 in Parks in Cape Tribulation
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.

  • The start of this walk is not easy to find. Need to park at the edge of the road next to the hotel Heritage Lodge (not far from the Blue hole) and don't hesitate to ask at the reception. The Lady very friendly in addition to show us the way, offered to keep our car keys. This allowed not to lose them and also let know qqun we did this market that lasts between 1:30-2: 00 to go and the same duration to return. Need good shoes, a swimsuit, water and a bag, waterproof backpack because the ride is done in the course of water and sometimes the water is deep and there are even of brief passages or there swim. The beginning is easy enough but more we arrive near the waterfall, the more climb on rocks. Be aware that there are no network and we were absolutely alone, which also adds charm to this experience. Once at the top, the waterfall is beautiful and it's nice to bathe. A very good physical condition is required and is not easy, especially if it's hot, but the result is worth it.
