Moderate track
Starting from Mulligan Bay, Hinchinbrook Island, this walk takes you to Mulligan Falls and back via Thorsborne Trail. After a rather undemanding walk from the beach, you can reach Mulligan Falls, which is formed by Diamantina Creek. The pool is situated beneath a magnificent rock, and it is deep enough for a swim to clear off the dust and sweat after the walk. Mulligan Campsite is pretty close to the falls if you are planning to stay. Access to the upper side of the falls and the rock is restricted due to safety reasons. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
