Cascading from the foothills of the Bellenden Kerr range, Babinda Boulders is an ancient rainforest stream that is rich in cultural history. It is located around one hour south of Cairns and 7km out of the small Township of Babinda.
With bright jade pools and large, tumbling boulders that give Babinda Boulders it’s name sake, it should come as no surprise that this is one of the most beautiful swimming holes near Cairns.
The water flows over through sculptural rock formations and gathers into a series of beautiful pools and waterfalls. As a matter of fact, the Indigenous word “Babinda” translates as “water flowing over rocks”.
On Wooroonooran Safaris, we invite you to enjoy a swim in this stunning rainforest pool. Float in the cool, clear water and enjoy your serene, luscious rainforest surroundings. The water tumbles from a stream off Queensland’s highest mountain, Mt Bartle Frere. This means it’s always cool and refreshing. There’s no better way to cool down in the tropics!
Walk through the rainforest to the Devil’s Pools lookout and learn about the famous Yindinji Indigenous legend that gave these beautiful pools their eerie name.
