Behana Gorge lies just a 30 minute drive south of Cairns. Part of the Cairns Regional Council catchment, Behana Gorge supplies Cairns with fresh water from the rainforest. With pristine swimming holes, breathtaking views and stunning waterfalls that flow into a deep granite gorge, Behana is a spectacular sight all year round.
It’s about a 45 minute walk along a sealed road running parallel to the creek to arrive at your final destination, Clamshell falls. Here you will find a beautiful waterfall with a cool swimming hole at its base.
There are no facilities so bring water, snacks and sunscreen. It’s best to walk early morning or late afternoon when the sun isn’t as harsh.
