A short walk through monsoon forest to a beautiful pool that gets some sunshine so it isn't freezing, just refreshing. There were lots of people swimming so we swam too despite the possibility of crocodiles. The falls were still flowing despite being the dry season....More

Emerald green water, so so so deep. I love it. Plus the walk in there is so lovely along the creekline. Climb to the top of barramundi gorge for added wow & specialness. 4WD only people I'm sick of pushing people through the sand.
