Today we spent the day at the beautiful waterfalls of Crystal Creek. It is just approximately half an hour away from Cairns, but as there are no buses going there it does nearly not get any backpackers at all. It is definitely worth a visit though. Not only are the waterfalls very nice to look at, but there are also a few spots where you can get down in the absolutely clear freshwater. Admitted, it is super cold, but in the middle of Australian summer that is absolutely enjoyable.
We really enjoyed our time there. Sliding down the little waterfalls and jumping from rocks almost made me feel like a kid again, but it was so fun! And the big rocks in the middle of the water are just the most perfect place to relax.
