Hopkins Falls

Hopkins Falls

Hopkins Falls are set in lush dairy country. They make an ideal picnic, fishing and walking spot, with gas BBQs and toilets provided. For a few days in early summer each year, the falls are the scene for one of nature’s most extraordinary migrations, as short-finned eels negotiate the falls on their migration to and from their spawning grounds in the Coral Sea (3000 km away).

Best viewed in winter or after heavy rainfall, they falls are not without their charms in the warmer months.

For a few days each summer baby eels migrate upstream and over the falls in one of the great natural phenomena, so keep your eyes open.
