Driving south from Cairns towards Townsville, the sun was hot and we weren’t too excited about having a day of just driving. To our surprise we saw a sign to Murray Falls and took the exit. Not sure what Murray Falls was all about, we continued down a road for about 30 minutes, partly dirt, and came across a picnic area, swimming area, and camp ground.
Quickly changing into our suits, we made it to the swimming area which had a small ‘fall’ area over smooth rocks. There were a few other people there enjoying the cool water and rope swing. We dove right in!
Getting into the water felt absolutely refreshing and exploring the surrounding area led us to three other pools as well. We left feeling much better and enjoyed the rest of our drive to Townsville.
