A Swimming Hole at Babinda Boulders. I love the color of that water!

The Mysterious Babinda Boulders south of Cairns : Aboriginal legend says the spirit of Oolana still guards the boulders and that her calls for her lost lover can still be heard. 17 lives taken in this pool since 1959 mostly young men.

Behana Gorge - great swimming spot. Some people call it Cairns' best kept secret. Completely off the tourist trail. But a 45 minute walk to get there.

Some people call it Cairns' best kept secret. Completely off the tourist trail. But a 45 minute walk to get there and well worth the effort and not too far to drive from Malurus Luxury Retreat.

Babinda Boulders - the water is crystal clear but chilly, even in the height of summer.

Babinda Boulders - these are the famous boulders where so many accidents have occurred and where swimming is not allowed.
