    HIKE TO WINDIN FALLS, FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND’S TABLELANDS

    Windin Falls is a spectacular waterfall located within Wooroonooran National Park in Tropical North Queensland.It takes about two hours from Cairns, plus a 5-km-hike before uncovering it.Being not easy to reach makes it even more rewarding to get to. The feeling when you lean onto the edge of the waterfall overlooking the Wet Tropics Rainforest is unbeatable.An important aspect to keep in mind is the different flow of the water whether you are going during dry or wet season, i.e. a calm stream vs a powerful waterfall.
