Danger - Unpredictable water conditions

Conditions at Josephine Falls can be extremely dangerous. Flash flooding (rapidly rising water) can occur at Josephine Falls at any time of the year.

Josephine Falls is a scenic waterfall fed by rains falling on Queensland’s highest peak, Bartle Frere, which looms above this popular picnic area.

Location
