Zoe Falls is a must-see natural bucket list attraction located along the iconic Thorsborne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island, off the Coast of Queensland, Australia. South Zoe Bay camping ground is located right at the mouth of South Zoe Creek on spectacular Zoe Bay. This camping area is the epitome of a tropical island paradise. Tuck yourself in under the thick canopy and take in the spell-binding ocean views from your tent, or grab a towel and head up the track to the stunning Zoe Falls.

From the rock face high above, water cascades over cliffs and ledges, gathering in pools, making its way around obstacles before the final plunge into the impossibly blue pool below. Slip into the pool and wash away the dust and salt of the day.

This island park is part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, famed for its superlative natural beauty, outstanding examples of reef ecosystem development, evolutionary history and amazing diversity.

  • Stay safe and get the most out of your visit by preparing for natural hazards and other outdoor risks. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.
  • Always enjoy waterfalls from trails and marked viewing points. Do not climb over barriers as cliff edges and slippery surfaces may cause injury or death.
  • Only swim where permitted. Don’t jump from cliff edges into water bodies.
  • Swimming near or under waterfalls can be dangerous due to strong currents, submerged hidden rock ledges and other dangers. The force of a waterfall can be incredibly strong and unfortunately, many people have drowned. Follow warning signs and take caution.
  • Wear suitable footwear and ensure to wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from the elements when outside exploring.
