About Behana Gorge
Behana Gorge is situated about a 30 minute drive south of Cairns and is one of the locals best kept secrets. Rarely visited by tourists as it requires a 45 minute walk each way with a good level of fitness, but don’t let this discourage you as it is well worth the trek when you are finally rewarded with pristine swimming holes, breathtaking views over rapidly raging water, and a stunning waterfall that flows into a deep granite gorge. The gorge is part of the Cairns Regional Council water catchment area that sources fresh water from pristine rainforest, to areas south of Cairns as well as the Cairns city. A locked gate and signage mark the start of the 6km return walk. The track follows a sealed road and large water pipe that runs parallel to the gorge.
