Mitchell Falls in June

The Mitchell Falls at the end of May

The Mitchell Falls at the end of May

Mitchell Falls looks amazing. But is it worth it going there at the end of June when the wet season is over? Is there going to be any water left?
Thank you for your help.
Cheers,

You can't go to the Mitchell Falls in the wet
by: Birgit

Hi France,
The only time you can get to the Mitchell Falls is long after the wet season is over.

The road isn't even open yet! (Early May). It will take a few more weeks for all the rivers to drop low enough so cars can to get through.

I took the photo above very late in May, maybe even in the first days of June. Can't remember exactly. As you can see, plenty of water coming down!

The Mitchell Falls, like all waterfalls up here, are at their most spectacular during the wet season, no doubt about that. But you can't get anywhere near them then! This is a remote wilderness area with only unsealed tracks that see little if any maintenance. You can't access it in the wet season. In the wet season you can only take scenic flights over the falls.

June is usually a good time to see the Mitchell Falls (always depends how much rain we had over the wet season, and this year was pretty good).

In late June it will be reasonably easy to get there, and all the rivers and creeks will still be flowing.
