About Babinda Harvest Festival

Babinda is a small sugar town located directly on the Bruce Highway approximately 60 kilometres South of Cairns. Its stunning location is shadowed by Queenslands two highest mountains; Mt Bartle Frere (1622m) and Mt Bellenden Kerr (1593m), which form part of the World Heritage listed Wooroonooran National Park. Crystal clear mountain streams, pristine rainforests and spectacular waterfalls portray Babinda as a hidden paradise often overlooked by travellers as just another North Queensland township. Our main attractions of the Babinda Boulders and Josephine Falls are arguably two of the most beautiful attractions of the Far North.

Art Deco Heritage listed buildings, fascinating Aboriginal legends, beautiful beaches, great fishing, natural wetlands, proximity to the amazing Frankland Island group and Great Barrier Reef and free camping areas with facilities are just a few more reasons Babinda should not be missed. Babinda is also the consistent winner of ‘Australia’s Wettest town’ title where rain is a celebration and the life force behind this amazing destination
