3. Chase waterfalls
Few things are as refreshing on a warm day as feeling the mist of a freshwater fall on your face and body.
Put a visit to Queen Mary Falls on your summer itinerary and enjoy the cool air created as the water cascades down the 40-metre-drop.
As Queen Mary Falls is the only thing allowed to make a splash at this location (read: swimming is prohibited), swap a swimming session with a coffee break at the aptly named Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park across the road.
Refuel with a burger and escape the midday sun or grab a cold drink or ice cream to refresh between walks.
If you’d prefer to explore a waterfall which ends with swimming, follow the Falls Drive to Browns Falls – one of the three waterfalls that make up the 80km stretch of scenic drive.
With only 600m separating you from the picnic area to the swimming hole, let the sound of the 15m high waterfall guide you to your next refreshing pitstop.
