A beautiful quiet spot about 40mins from Cardwell, Queensland. Grassed area with fire ring,non potable water and flushing toilets. Swimming holes fed by huge water falls. Walk to top of Falls if you are reasonably fit. Enjoyed our stay there.

Had an amazing overnight stay here in the camping grounds. Facilities are great and to drift off to sleep to the sound of the waterfall was peaceful and calming. One night was not enough. Great for day trippers also.

I recommend a visit to Murray Falls for the scenery, swimming and campground. The road is a little rough but well worth the drive.
