Roaring Meg Falls is an absolutely stunning waterfall three quarters of the way along the CREB track from Daintree to Wujal Wujal.The first nations people of the area ask that only women visit the top of the falls since it is a sacred women’s site Accordingly, they also request that no photographs are taken. Karen did visit the top and said it was a stunning place. She was so moved she came out in tears. Very special.
For many thousands of years, first nations people have lived in this spectacular region.Due to the difficult terrain, early expeditions bypassed the Daintree to Wujal Wujal area. Mountainous ranges and thick rainforest show why they chose the coast road. However this all changed when gold was discovered around Cooktown. People flocked to the area during the Palmer River Gold Rush. From Daintree to Wujal Wujal however was primarily mined for tin. We absolutely love travelling and fishing around Cooktown. So grabbed the good weather window to travel the CREB track while it lasted. Part 2 of our travels along the track can be watched in the video below…
The right fishing gear is a MUST!
