Join us for an epic full day tour exploring the must see waterfalls and lakes of the Atherton Tablelands.

We start the day with heading west up the mountain range were you’ll uncover amazing views over the Goldsborough Valley and the famous Walsh Pyramid on route to our first destination.

Our first stop is the gorgeous Lake Barrine. You’ll have time to capture gorgeous morning photographs of this picturesque location and soak in it’s magical atmosphere.

Next we arrive at the breathtaking Lake Eacham! This amazing lake is inside a volcanic crater and is surrounded by lush rainforest and is known as the most pristine lake in the Atherton Tablelands. Here we relax, swim, and take in the beauty of this truly breathtaking location.

The Curtain Fig Tree is our next destination - you will be amazed by this unique and fascinating ancient landmark!

We next stop off in Malanda to see some cute local turtles before arriving at the world-famous Milla Milla Falls.

This stunning waterfall has been showcased world wide on the Herbal Essence commercial! Here we’ll take the opportunity to have a dip, snap those picture perfect photographs and enjoy a picnic lunch (BYO food) surrounded by nature at its very finest!

On the way to our final location we head to Crawfords Lookout for some amazing views and photograph opportunities before descending down the mountain to Josephine Falls.

A true local favourite, the Josephine Falls is ranked among the most beautiful waterfalls in Australia and boasts pristine waters, beautiful scenery and an epic natural rock waterslide! We stay here hanging out, exploring, swimming, and relaxing until you're ready to hit the road back to Cairns.

Being such a small and personal tour group, we top off the perfect day by offering guests to join in for a bit of fun and drinking at a local venue after the tour.

Cairns waterfalls tour 6* with Terry

One of the best tours I've had in a long time. Terry picked us up promptly at 7:30 and returned around 6pm. We visited some amazing waterfalls and stopped at a few places with fantastic scenery and a decent lunch and ice cream stop. We were a small group of 10 people and Terry was able to time all of our arrivals to beat the large tour groups. Not only was Terry full of knowledge, but a great sense of humor as well. I'd rate this tour higher than 6 stars if able. DO IT!! I forgot to mention, He took great pics and video as well, which he took on his camera and sent to us. Awesome!!

Worth it

Beautiful scenery, definitely worth a whole day of seeing the surrounding of tablelands. Good vibes and music on bus, but only negitive thing is the bus is abit small and squishy.

Great day out

This was my second time on this tour, I had a great time 2 weeks ago, and with a day to spare, I felt this tour was the best value day on offer. I wasn't disappointed. I had a great time visiting and swimming in the waterfalls, and Terry was a great source of info, with his passion for the rainforest. Top value. Terry goes out of his way to make all of the group feel like a group of friends. For a solo traveller, this was great.
