1 Day Atherton Tablelands Tour Itinerary

Our one day Atherton Tablelands Tour takes you outside of the city and gives you the chance to soak up the spectacular beauty that surrounds Cairns.

For the day, you’ll have the chance to experience the incredible landscape of the Atherton Tablelands, taking in some of the region’s best swimming spots and marveling at the stunning array of wildlife that characterises the area.

We’ll start the day by departing Cairns and adventuring south to the Babinda Boulders to stop for morning tea. Soak up the incredible scenery of this lush rainforest and learn about the significant history of the indigenous people of the area.

Our next stop on our Atherton Tablelands Day Tour is the popular Josephine Falls. Try the unique opportunity to slide down the natural rockslide or simply relax and soak in the precious lush rainforest scenery!

Next, we journey to Crawford’s Lookout to admire in the superb scenery before heading onto the world famous Millaa Millaa Falls – the well photographed waterfalls have been featured on many TV commercials including Herbal Essence Shampoo. Be sure to get your hair flicks photo taken at the waterfalls!

Next, we continue our adventure to marvel at the biggest tree known to Queensland, the Curtain Fig Tree. These trees are so unique that it forms a “curtain” like roots that drops from the canopy into the ground.

We stop to refuel for lunch (at own expense) at Malanda and have an opportunity to go wildlife spotting for some tree kangaroos and platypus!

To end our adventurous day at the Tablelands, we’ll journey to our last swimming spot at Lake Eacham, an extinct volcano that has filled with water to a depth of over 60 meters making it to be one of the best swimming places in Queensland.
