Fodor's Review

Extending south of Gordonvale to the Palmerston Highway near Innisfail, this is one of the most densely vegetated areas in Australia. Rain forest rules—from the lowland tropical variety to the stunted growth on Mt. Bartle Frere—at 5,287 feet, the highest point in Queensland. Walking tracks range from the stroll-in-the-park Tchupala Falls and Josephine Falls circuits (30 minutes each) to the challenging Walshs Pyramid track, just south of Cairns, and the gruelling two-day Bartle Frere trail. You may camp throughout the park with permits (A$5.95 per person, per day), except at Josephine Falls; BYO drinking water and stove. At Henrietta Creek campground, look out for platypus, turtles, and possums after dark. Josephine Falls is 75 km (47 miles) south of Cairns off the Bruce Highway, near Miriwinni.
