Reached by a short walking path and just below the carpark, is the small Henrietta Creek waterhole. Surrounded by rainforest, the pool has a sandy bank where you enter the water, and a table on the grass above the creek. It can get fairly busy, as the swimming hole is the closest to the Henrietta Creek Campground – although I was lucky to have it to myself after completing the Nandroya Falls Loop bushwalk.
Getting to Henrietta Creek waterhole
The swimming hole is below the Henrietta Creek Campground in the Wooroonooran National Park. The national park and campground is on the Palmerston Highway, which is about a 1:30min drive to the south of Cairns via the Bruce Highway.
