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). 

 

About

The Hopkins River mouth (and Blue Hole) with its beautiful cliffs, rock formations and rock pools is a popular fishing spot. In late spring, short-finned eels can sometimes gather in huge numbers waiting for access to the sea on their journey to the Coral Sea. Just up from the river mouth, boating, water-skiing and swimming are possible. The National Trust-classified Proudfoots Boathouse is nearby.
