Araluen Cascades Track

Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday

From Finch Hatton Gorge picnic area, a moderate circuit with uphill sections leads you through lush rainforest and between granite boulders to the lookout above Araluen Cascades. If you are keen to swim, observe safety signs, jumping and diving into the water is prohibited. Variable water depths, submerged rocks and logs, and fast flowing water combine to make this activity extremely dangerous. Accidents have resulted in serious injury and a number of deaths

Overcast and spitting day, bit nervous about crossing the creek in out little i30 to get to the start of the walk but wasnt an issue.

The walk itself is lovely. lots of fungi to spot along the way. the water was still freezing! (in the height of Summer!!) but absolutely crystal clear and so refreshing!

The signage isnt wrong- the rocks are very slippery and you need to be careful.
