About a month ago, Townsville Enterprise organised the Townsville North Queensland Instameet – ‘CHASING WATERFALLS’.
A bunch of photographers set out together to capture the tropical rainforests, eco-adventures and cultural heritage of Hinchinbrook. Only an hour’s drive north of Townsville, the scenic region was a wonderland of nature-based attractions in a vibrant cultural setting. There were numerous walking tracks, historical sites as well as national parks for picnics, photography and bike riding.
Unfortunately, I was sick the day of the meet up so myself and my partner explored together the following weekend. We included a detour to Frosty Mango (you can’t miss the giant mango on the side of the road) and Wallaman Falls. We learnt that if you ever need to put things back into perspective, you should hike Australia’s highest permanent single-drop waterfall. It stands at 268 meters and the two hour return hike will leave you feeling both accomplished and a little sore! From there we made our way to Tyto Wetlands & Parklands and explored Paluma Range National Park which is home to both Jourama Falls and Little Crystal Creek.
