Emmagen Creek

If turquoise water, giant trees and a few resident turtles float your boat, we recommend Emmagen Creek.

This stunning series of deep pools can be reached by a path on the Southern side of the Creek crossing. Emmagen Creek is around an hour and a half walk from Cape Tribulation Village, or just a 12 minute drive.

Please note: do not swim in the creek over the crossing as crocodiles have been spotted in this lower end of the creek. However, the deep pools at the end of the walking track are safe and crocodile free.

Mason’s swimming hole has swings, clear water and is just a 30 second walk from Masons Cafe, which serves yummy lunches. This swimming hole is completely crocodile free, although they do have crocodiles in their burgers! Are you game enough to try it?

Masons Cafe and swimming hole are located just a 20 minute stroll from Cape Tribulation village.
