Where is it? In the southern section of the World Heritage-Listed Daintree National Park, about 20km west  of Port Douglas in tropical north Queensland

How to see it for yourself?

This image was taken from the base of steps down to the waterhole at Mossman Gorge. The the best way to see this view first-hand is on fivefoot. Guided walks are available, which encompass other sites that are culturally significant to the local Kuku Yalanji people. The vivid green of the water pictured tends to happen after extended periods without rain. According to the photographer, for ultimate serenity, the best time to visit is early in the morning before the crowds set in.

Why I love it

“Towards the end of the dry season the rapids of Mossman Gorge have usually disappeared. By then, the calm waters offer a perfect place to take a dip and escape the heat of Tropical North Queensland. I really love this view because the shades of green in the water and surrounding rainforest are truly remarkable.” – Mark Gray
