Camping is not permitted at Josephine Falls.

Camping is available nearby at Henrietta Creek in Palmerston, at Goldsborough Valley and at Russell River National Park. Facilities differ at each site. Camping permits are required and fees apply.

If you prefer to rough it, then limited bush camping opportunities exist as part of the Bartle Frere trail. These are ‘hike-in’ sites and the camper needs to be totally self-sufficient. Here too, camping permits are required andfees apply.
