Take a drive to Spring Creek
Spring Creek is a 5 minute drive from the township of Port Douglas.
You can either head along Trezise road (turn right coming from Cairns Direction) or along Mowbray River Road (turn right coming from Port Douglas Direction) Follow the road along till you see a sign saying Spring Creek road.
Follow for about a kilometre and you will come to a beautiful little waterhole in the jungle where you can see Jungle Perch and freshwater Turtles in the crystal clear water.
If you are visiting during the monsoon months – December to April take care as the water can be very fast flowing.
Many species of Kingfisher can be seen at this location. It is a really pretty drive out this way, if you have a hire car whilst you are in Port Douglas make sure you make the time to explore out this way.
