Emerald Creek Falls

Mareeba, Mareeba Area

Emerald Creek rushes out of the rainforest-clad heights of the Lamb Range and down into open eucalypt woodland. There the waters of the creek tumble over granite boulders, forming the picturesque falls that plunge into placid pools.

Emerald creek has a series of cascading waterfalls over granite boulders. A walking track takes you alongside the creek to the numerous falls and lagoons, up to the lookout with views of the valley towards Mareeba. The site is an ideal picnic spot and has several great swimming holes. Road is not suitable for caravans.

Camping is not permitted at Emerald Creek
