What a beautiful place to visit!!! Such a refreshing swim and sitting under the waterfall is just amazing. Did however have to pick up people's trash that they left there... please take rubbish with you so we can enjoy places like this!!

Wonderful water falls. Swim was so refreshing You can leave your vam out the front and drove in. You cam tow in but if theres no room you would have to bring it. Ack out anyway


Korker Adventures

Fantastic falls and swimming hole. If you're camping nearby (we camped at the Bamaga road bypass turnoff) you get the place to yourself late in the afternoon. No camping at Fruit Bat falls though. The track in is in good condition and offers caravan or trailer parking for app 4-6 spots in different areas of the carpark but the track is narrow in spots.
