We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
Nandroya Falls is the perfect postcard picture of paradise. The sheer size of this single drop cascade is majestic enough to take your breath away.
Today, I throw on my lace playsuit* and Triangl bikini* and take you on a wanderlust filled adventure to Nandroya Falls.

Cairns is like a never-ending treasure trove of rainforest waterfalls and hidden beaches. Although I've lived here for almost four years, I will be a permanent tourist!
Despite Jake living in Cairns his whole life, he didn't find himself being a tourist in his own town until he met me. I guess that's the magic of being with a foreigner! I think that no matter how long I live in Australia, I will always have some sort of invisible glowing arrow that screams tourist! As well as being the owner of the weirdest accent you can possibly imagine, Jake and I constantly explore places that only backpackers seem to adventure to!
Nandroya Falls is located off the Palmerston Highway in the Atherton Tablelands. Despite the walking track being described as 'moderate', I would consider it quite easy. The falls themselves can be reached by a 3.5km walk through the stunning tropical North Queensland rainforest.
Although I thought this waterfall was quite unknown, quite a few people popped by for a swim when I was swimming. This was pretty embarrassing as I was doing my whole blogger thing and flouncing around in this lace playsuit like some crazy that might as well have the phrase moron branded onto her forehead.
I paired my lace playsuit with this geometric, print C/meo Collective print scarf. I think that a silk scarf is a great way to add a fair dollop of class to a short or low-cut playsuit. I'm not going to lie: I did not endure the sweaty trek in this delicate, lacy piece. However, I did do the trek in this Triangl bikini layered under a crochet halter. You know me: I keep it real with you guys.
Although the water was about equivalent to a Scottish loch in the dead of Winter, it was worth it to embrace this stunning falls in all its glory. If that wasn't enough, Nandroya Falls also has a second tier a few metres down, which although smaller in size, is certainly picturesque.
