"Wooroonooran Falls" Historic Property with World Heritage Rainforest & Stunning

Babinda
Enveloped by World Heritage listed rainforest, this unique 32.23 hectare property lies under the shadow of Mt. Wooroonooran, the second tallest mountain in Queensland.

Within 45 mins drive from Cairns international airport, this magical retreat is just 350 metres of one of the Top 5 most beautiful waterfalls in Tropical North Queensland, and 10 mins from the Great Barrier Reef.

The property was owned by one of the first settlers in the area, the Hon. Victor Nelson Hood, the nephew of Lord Nelson, and the Godson of Queen Victoria. His photos show the property as it was in 1884.

The large 4 bed, 1 bath Queenslander home was built in 1948. Views from the front verandah are over fields of sugar cane, to the rainforest clad mountains in the distance. Flowing past the house is crystal clear creek surrounded by granite boulders, with a resident Platypus. The property is bordered on two sides by ancient tropical rainforest of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, described by Sir David Attenborough as "The most extraordinary place on Earth".

A mere 350 metres from your doorstep, amidst the rainforest is the stunning 30 metre Wooroonooran Falls, a secret known only to locals for over 100 years. The falls were photographed as a tourism attraction in 1910, and by the 1920s the owner was advocating for them to be made accessible for tourists. There is also a superb jungle swimming hole 200m from the house.

Note! The falls are not on the property for sale, they are in the adjacent Wooroonooran National Park.
