Var du kommer att vara

Bramston Beach, Queensland, Australien

There are many unique spots nearby, BRAMSTON BEACH is 5 km away. The main part of the beach, adjacent to the camping area, has a rock groyne that has trapped the sand to build a wide, steep beach to the south, with a low, flat, eroding beach to the north. Toward Rocky Point, wider tidal flats replace the bar. The small Joyce Creek flows out against the point, with a breakwater partly protecting the creek, so as to allow small boats to reach the boat ramp inside the creek mouth.
Swimming: A relatively safe beach with best swimming at mid to high tide, when the bar and tidal flats are covered. The patrolled area is immediately in front of the camping area and a stinger net is operated during the summer.

Not far are places like EUBENANGEE WETLANDS

The Eubenangee Swamp National Park is one of the most important wetland areas between Cooktown and Ingham. It contains a number of rare plant species and plays an important role in the conservation of the region’s wildlife, in particular birds. The swamp is one of the best bird watching spots in far north Queensland, but you will almost always spot butterflies, turtles and crocodiles as well.

Turn off at Mirriwinni on to the Bramston Beach Road, and travel about 9 kilometers to the sign-posted turnoff. A 1 kilometre walking track allows visitors to explore Eubenangee’s fascinating wetlands and an outstanding view of Mt Bartle Frere.

There are no facilities except for the walking track, and camping is not permitted. Admittance is free.

On a hot day,a dip in the infamous Babinda Boulders would certainly be refreshing. The pristine water that fills up the creek comes from Queensland’s highest mountain, Mount Bartle Frere. Besides that it is bounded by the wonderful shades of green coming from the thriving rainforest, visitors are said to enjoy this destination because the water remains cold even during the middle of the summer season. This is what makes Babinda Boulders ideal for battling the afternoon heat.
The Babinda Boulders is also deemed as a spiritual place by the Aboriginal people. At the same time, the Cairns City Council has named it a sanctuary for various flora and fauna species. These are the two main considerations why visitors should be more wary while they are on this nature park’s premises. And of course, for the more obvious safety reasons since several accidents have occurred here before, particularly near the vicinity of the infamous Devil’s Pool. Visitors are expected to follow and respect the warning signs that are placed in certain areas that are steep and slippery.
Among the several swimming holes, the Devil’s Pool Walk is the most talked about. As its name implies, getting there is not an easy task but with the proper attitude and discipline, it is certainly manageable. It can be reached through the lower region of the picnic area and from there you will be guided to a walk path that is located by the side of the Babinda Creek. The trail is approximately 1.3 kilometres in distance and challenging to some extent. The rocky pathway will show the way to the thick and blossoming rainforest that this place regularly boasts about. Two observation platforms can be found at the end of the trail. From there visitors can view the whole part of the creek and on one specific spot, the precarious Devil’s Pool
Aside from swimming, picnicking is also a common visitor activity. Designated picnic areas can be found in several places within the nature park. Cooking is allowed as barbecue grills are equipped near the picnic areas. Visitors can enjoy the afternoon by just lounging around while admiring the beauty of the crystal clear water trying to make its way through the considerably huge boulders. Babinda Boulders is a suitable place to unwind as the experience can prove to be quite therapeutic.

Traditional country of the Ngadjon-Jii

Travel south from Cairns to Mirriwinni (68km). Two kilometres past Mirriwinni, turn right into the signposted road to Josephine Falls. The car park is a further 8km along this road. From the car park follow a signposted 600m walk to the clean, clear waters of Josephine Creek that tumble off the slopes of Mt Bartle Frere.

Platforms allow safe views of the falls. Wheelchair access is available to the viewing platform at the top pool and stairs lead down to the bottom pool.

The water is surprisingly cold, and this has produced an unusually cool microclimate. You will be able to observe the Atherton Palm as well as the moisture-loving potato fern.

No dogs are allowed in this National Park, and camping at the falls is prohibited.

Caution and common sense are required during our wet season. There is the potential for flash flooding to occur, as well as sudden increases in water levels.

Nevertheless, when the temperatures and the humidity are high, the falls are refreshingly cool and beautiful, and an excellent spot for a picnic. Don’t miss it!

Josephine Falls is also the start point for the Bartle Frere hiking Track and the Broken Nose hiking track.

Golden Hole (Biggs Recreation Reserve) is located on the Russell River, 1.5 km from the Josephine Falls turnoff. It is located at the foot of Mt Bartle Frere, and has great views of Queensland’s tallest mountain.

This recreation area has a large open grassed area with a covered picnic table. A toilet block is located nearby. The river is close by and is a popular fishing spot. Swimming and canoeing are also popular, but there is a crocodile warning sign posted.

With an altitude of 1622 metres, Mount Bartle Frere is acknowledged as Queensland’s highest mountain. Various types of rainforest surround the whole of the hiking trail making it a shelter for the wildlife species. Adventurous backpackers are usually attracted to this hiking site not only because of the challenging trail but more importantly the view that you get to perceive once you reach the summit. The Aborigines call it Chooreechillum, but its common name was derived from the surname of the former British colonial bureaucrat, Sir Henry Bartle Frere, who was also Cape Colony’s acting British Governor when the Zulu Wars commenced. From there, it can be said that this mountain is associated with a somewhat important part of history making it more meaningful to climb.
Situated within the Wooroonooran National Park, Mount Bartle Frere can be accessed through the hiking trail that starts in the car park of the Josephine Falls, which another common destination among visitors. From the parking area, it would take about 10-12 hours of walking (or roughly 15km in distance) to reach the mountain’s peak. Climbing this mountain is not just demanding because of the steep rocks and unstable weather conditions but more importantly, the orange markers that are placed to guide the hikers are rather tricky to recognize. First time hikers are usually prone to pursuing the wrong footpath and a number of visitors have actually went off course even during the earliest part of the trail. But even so, with the proper amount of prepping and cautiousness, hiking up Mount Bartle Frere could be one worthwhile experience especially when you get the opportunity to observe the coastal lowlands and the Atherton Tablelands from above. Camping on the mountain premises is allowable once you secure a permit from rangers. It is recommended to ascend during the colder season like winter since there is a small chance of rain during this time
Another way to climb up this historic mountain is through the west side of the mountain, where a small camping site is positioned. With already an elevation of 700 m, hikers can accomplish the climb with less difficulty within the day. Bushwalking clubs regularly take advantage of this option during the months of June to October, when the weather condition is dry and cold. You can get to the starting point of this trail by driving through the Topaz and Gourka Roads.

Jag bor på 66 tunnland med vackra regnskogar i Norra Queensland. Jag älskar trädgårdsarbete och att skapa konstverk till min trädgård som skulpturer och mosaik. Jag njuter av buskiga promenader och djurlivet runt särskilt den lokala ungdoms Cassowary som besöker då och då. Jag arbetar för närvarande hemifrån med Solergy, ett företag inom ren energi som installerar solcellssystem i NT. Min bakgrund har varit i vuxenutbildning och jag tillbringade ett antal år som Art Lecturer på Alice Springs Correctional Centre. Under de senaste åren har jag tillbringat en hel del tid i Luang Prabang, Lao. Jag köper handvävda silkeshalsdukar och annat hantverk och säljer dem på olika marknader. Jag flyger in/ut från Alice Springs i affärer vid olika tider på året. Annars tillbringar jag min tid på denna vackra fridfulla plats.
