Mount Hypipamee National Park

About an hour’s drive southwest from Cairns CBD, Mount Hypipamee National Park has two main sites: picturesque Dinner Falls and the Crater. The latter is an arresting, 82-meter deep volcanic pipe with a lake at the bottom. The surrounding area — despite not being that large — hosts several types of forest, and a diverse array possum species call these forests home. This park is included the traditional land of the Aboriginal Ngadjon and Jirrbal peoples. Make sure that you respect their special site during your visit.
