THINGS TO DO
The Boulders is a popular cool swimming and picnic area in the tropical rainforest in the foothills of Bartle Frere (Chooreechillum), at 1622m, Queenslandês highest mountain.

The Boulders area is named for a series of huge outcrops of granite boulders found along Babinda Creek amongst volumes of sparkling, cascading, cool, clear mountain water.

With an exceedingly high average annual rainfall of 4614mm, the surge of water in the creek as it thunders through the Boulders adds to the wild beauty of the region. The creek is surrounded by lush tropical rainforest with a myriad of trees, ferns, vines, fungi, moss and lichen.

A sealed, well maintained walking track leads downstream to the main Boulders viewing area.
Some areas within the Boulders are restricted swimming zones. Signs at the main parking area provide diagrams and information of fauna, flora and safety.
