While touring the Tropical Coast, the Wild Tribe visited πŸ’¦ Little Crystal Creek πŸ’¦ in the Paluma Range National Park - the Southern Gateway to the Tropical Coast.

Seriously, this place is breathtakingly beautiful β™‘

Little Crystal Creek, McClellands lookout and the town of Paluma are accessed off Mount Spec Road.
The road is windy and buses, caravans and campervans should travel with caution.

Swimming in the clear spring & around the waterfall is very invigorating πŸ™ŒπŸ»

The historic bridge that was built in the 1930s, towering over the falls is what makes this little piece of paradise even all the more special πŸƒ
