Just got off the magnificent ocean freedom machine. What a vessel, what wonderfull helpful staff. I had dived before in Tahiti 20 years ago and felt comfortable, but today I could get a grip of it and with as much help and reassurance from the staff I couldn't dive today. No matter at all as the snorkelling is amazing and the barracuda swimming around the back of the boat was truly amazing. There are 4 different places to relax and we used them all at some point during the day. Money very well spent and I would recommend this to anyone at any level of competence.David Fitchett
The Goldsborough Valley is one of the greenest areas in the tropical north. It is hidden between high mountains south of Cairns where it funnels the Mulgrave River out to sea. This is an area of farming, cattle ranches, and thick rainforest. It is one of the favourite camping spots for Cairns locals because it is relatively close to the city and yet also feels like a world away. It's easy to look out from the top of the mountains and have absolutely no idea that a bustling city of 120 000 people is only an hours drive away.
The Goldsborough Valley campsite is at the end of the road and has all the facilities you could possibly ask for in a campsite. Each site has its own fireplace with a stock of wood to burn if required. There is a toilet block and an information centre as well. At the southern end of the campsite is a short hiking trail that leads to a gigantic waterfall. This is an easy hike that is ideal for kids. Along side the camping ground is the Mulgrave River where you can swim and canoe all day long. This stretch of the river is slow moving, and therefore is very safe.
How to get to the Goldsborough Valley
The Goldsborough Valley can only be accessed with your own car, unless you are taking a tour on a bus. It takes 1-1/4 hour's drive to reach.
To drive there, head south along the Bruce Highway until you reach the cane-farming town of Gordonvale. You will come to a set of traffic lights with a petrol station on the left hand side. Turn right onto the Gillies highway, and drive for another 20 kilometres.
On the left side of the road will be a bridge with the name “Peets' Bridge”. Cross this bridge and follow the sealed road. You are now in Goldsborough Valley. To reach the campsite, continue driving for another 15 kilometres through the undulating hills.
