Cedar Creek Falls Whitsundays Attraction

Locals have enjoyed the secluded Cedar Creek Falls for many years, savoring the cool, clean water below the waterfall as a swimming hole and a respite from the tropical heat during the wet season.

Fantastic as a picnic spot that the whole family can enjoy, the Cedar Creek Falls are particularly spectacular after good rain. Perhaps the best times to visit the popular waterfall is during the wet season, which runs from around the beginning of December to the end of March, when the level of consistent rainfall is at the highest.

How to get to Cedar Creek Falls

Cedar Creek Falls is just off Conway Beach Road. Driving from Ailie Beach, take the Proserpine - Shute Harbour Road and turn left at Conway Beach Road. Travel down this road for about 7 kilometers, then turn left again at the turn off to Cedar Creek Falls.

The road is well signed so you can't miss the turnoff. The final leg of the trip is on gravel road and there is a causeway that could have water across the road, so limit your car speed and drive according to the conditions.

There is ample car parking, toilets and picnic area located on site, with the falls visible from the car park area, which is ideal for those with limited mobility. The walk from the Cedar Creek Falls car park to the water is just some twenty paces along a dirt track.

Safety

While Cedar Creek Falls is a wonderful place to enjoy the refreshing clean water and unspoiled rain forest, you must take care as there is danger of accidents. Do not attempt to climb the falls or jump from any height into the water.

Fatalities have occurred in the past and even with signs stating that jumping or diving from the falls can be fatal, people still disregard the safety notices and stupidly, severely injure themselves.

Please do not become a Cedar Creek Falls statistic. Above all, enjoy the spectacular waterfall, swim safely and look where you walk. It is your responsibility to act sensibly in a safe manner.
