Access to Blencoe Falls is either by road via the Blencoe Falls Access Road or the Jabali (pronounced Ju-bah-li and meaning 'whiptail wallaby') walk which starts just west of the Blencoe Falls Camping Area. The walk allows visitors to discover the rugged country of the Australian bush. The walk travels through open eucalypt forest as it meanders towards the Blencoe Falls lookout. Return the same way or arrange for a pick up at the Blencoe Falls lookout car park.

Blencoe Falls—one of the most stunning waterfalls in Australia—plunges 90m to the pool below, before cascading a further 230m to the bottom of Blencoe Gorge.

Situated 110km south-east of Mount Garnet, 84km north-west of Cardwell.

Blencoe Falls, Girringun National Park boasts spectacular scenery and an array of plant and animal life. Just as impressive is the Herbert River Gorge with its towering cliffs and dry, rugged ridges.

Open forest dominates the escarpments and she-oaks line the Herbert River. Along the gullies and upper slopes of the Herbert River Gorge, vine-thicket rainforest scattered with hoop pines persists.

In the open forest, animals such as the elegant whiptail wallaby and gangly emu try to find sanctuary from the heat. In the river and creeks, freshwater turtles can be seen basking on logs or peering through the surface of the water.

Natural, cultural and historical values make this region a truly special place. We invite you to explore the park, learn about its history and enjoy the diverse plant and animal life.

There is no camping at Blencoe Falls Lookout. Camping is available at the Blencoe Falls Camping Area at Cashmere Kirrama Road.
