Windin falls / by Ethan Astall

Two hours drive SW of cairns will find you in the Wooroonooran national park which can be accessed from the table lands or the eastern side off the highway. To get to Windin falls you need to venture in from the table lands otherwise you’ll be stuck driving around in circles on the wrong side of the national park.

The drive in gets a bit bumpy and severely muddy towards the end, on the way in we passed a little Mazda and the people inside obviously weren’t Adventurous enough and had pulled the pin on finding this place. 5 minutes further down the road we saw why but we just parked the car off the to the side of the road and walked to the start of the trail. 

The walking track was once an old four wheel drivers novelty that connected the table lands to cairns. Massive ruts and wash outs filled with water pave the way along this 8km return trail. Some of the spots it’s hard to believe that keen fourbie drivers once tackled these. Cheers but I’d rather not wreck my car. Near the end you will see a simple little map screwed to a tree explainbig the turn off to the infinity pool and top of the water fall. Follow this down for about 10 minutes and HAZZAR you’ve found it.
