Cassowary Falls

Wednesday we took a drive up to the town of Daintree and went for a walk to Cassowary Falls. It was a bit of a rip-off; we had to pay $10 each to walk through private property but the falls were pretty nice and refreshing at the end. 
Indi was happy because there was a horse lazing around the front gate. She named him ‘Fortune’. 

The walk took us through an open paddock along a creek, then through some denser forest where there was a little pool and lots of big rocks

We followed this creek along until we got to Cassowary Falls. It was beautiful and green and cool, and we had it all to ourselves. We all jumped in for a swim. The boys swam all the way across to the waterfall on the other side, but I wasn’t that game!

Little freshwater Perch came up to greet us

What a cute trip. The $10 bucks was all worth it for that great shot with the falls and the one with the horse - precious ;)

Is it walking distance from Daintree village? Or is there a drive? If so is it a dirt road? I will only have a huyadi Getz car.

Hi Alana. This was a while ago now, but I'm pretty sure the road out to the property was sealed. If it was dirt I don't remember it being excessively rough. Not walking distance from the Daintree village though. I think we bought the passes from the info centre in the village. Are you in Far North Qld now? If so, I'm so jealous ;-)
