Emerald Creek rushes out of the rainforest-clad heights of the Lamb Range and down into open eucalypt forest. There the waters of the creek tumble over granite boulders, forming the picturesque falls that plunge into placid swimming pools. Emerald creek has a series of cascading waterfalls over granite boulders. A taking walks song takes you along the creek to the several falls and lagoons, as much as the lookout with perspectives of the valley in the direction of Mareeba. The web site is a super picnic spot and has several super swimming holes. Road isn't always appropriate for caravans.
Camping isn't always authorized at Emerald Creek. Bottlebrush trees sprout from between the rocks, their pink flowers giving a touch of coloration to the scene in season. Smooth-barked water gums lean over the creek, the trunks of a few curiously twisted through the battering of floodwaters. Cool down after the stroll in Emerald Creek. There are massive flat boulders and sandy reaches to sit on and enjoy the scenery. Take care on slippery rocks in and near the creek.
