amazing FRESH WATER SWIMs
these waterholes in & around port douglas are truly magical
Located at the end of a 1.5k walking track this magic little find is the closest to Port Douglas and a guaranteed winner.
Just north of Port Douglas on Shannonvale Rd. Follow the signs to Shannonvale winery till you see it. You won’t miss it as the road crosses the creek.
Pass Mossman & turn left onto Syndicate road, pass through the cane fields till you get to a bridge. It’s only a small bridge so keep your eyes peeled!
Located on Syndicate road look out for Finlayvale Road, turn left & about half way up you will spot this great swimming hole.
Located on Finlayvale Road just down from the Hippy hole (there’s a little hint). Park up just near the bridge & walk down to discover the crystal clear waters of the Mossman river.
Scenery to die for, great walking tracks through the rainforest. Have a dip in the river & enjoy the serenity.
Some things always have to remain a secret.. aka the Hippy Hole! If you find this hidden gem tag us in your social media posts.
The perfect pit stop for a great burger & swim in this fresh watering hole. The kids will love it! On Cape Trip Rd.
The rains in the wet season can make swimming in the rivers and waterholes very dangerous - flash flooding, submerged objects, dangerous currents. Please swim with caution at all times.
