The answer is Crystal

Crystal Cascades is a beautiful creek only a short drive from the centre of Cairns

One of the advantages of photographing your local area is that you know the small hidey-holes that short-term visitors might never discover. Whilst big cities might boast out-of-the-way cafes and galleries, Cairns has a plethora of hidden rainforest creeks and swimming holes.

One of the closest to the centre of Cairns is the popular local spot of Crystal Cascades. This medium-sized creek running through a rainforest-lined valley is home to a couple of very popular swimming holes as well as a well-worn jogging and walking path.
