Located about 20 minutes outside of Airlie Beach between Airlie Beach and Proserpine on Saltwater Creek Road, Cedar Creek Falls are definitely one of the hidden wonders of the Whitsunday region. Set in a natural rock amphitheatre, you will enjoy spectacular waterfalls in the wet season and abundant flora and fauna including majestic white cedar trees, Alexandra Palms, wild orchids, colourful butterflies and many beautiful birds.
This peaceful and secluded waterfall offers a fantastic natural swimming hole to be enjoyed all year round. The wet season however, is certainly the best time to see the waterfall in all its glory. Cedar Creek is a great spot to chill out and enjoy the sun, there is a short bush trail to the top of the waterfalls to enjoy the beautiful views over the area.
Sometimes if you are lucky enough you will be joined by wild turtles so, if you have some, make sure you pack your snorkeling gear. For your own safety jumping and diving from the waterfall is strictly prohibited.
