Would you like to join the best waterfalls and Tablelands tour in Cairns? Then look no further! We only take you to the best waterfalls and lakes around!!!



We start our fun filled journey around 7am, heading west up the mountain range with spectacular views over ”Goldsborough valley and famous Walsh Pyramid! ”


Continuing on to check out the beautiful Lake Barrine! Capture the early morning light with beautiful pics of the surrounding landscapes and majestic lake. Take the chance to stretch your legs.


Next up, we check out the most pristine lake in the Atherton Tablelands, Lake Eacham! Put on your swimmers as we're about to go for a dip!


Time to see first hand the beauty of Mother Nature, with the Curtain Fig Tree. Here you'll get a brief educational chat about the rainforest biodiversity and the importance of land management and conservation. 


Along the road to Milaa Milaa Falls we take a brief stop in Malanda, where we’ve got a small surprise for you… super cute little turtles!


Now prepare yourself for one of the most picturesque waterfalls! Have you heard about the waterfall where a Herbal Essence commercial was filmed in North Queensland!? Well here you are! The perfect place to flick your hair back and get that Insta-worthy photo! After your personal photoshoot, let’s enjoy a picnic lunch in this wonderful place.


Is time to dry off, as we are going to view Crawford's Lookout. Definitely take as many photos as you can while we descend down the mountain range to Josephine Falls.


Josephine Falls, voted by locals as the most popular swimming hole in the area! Be ready for some super fun, sliding your backside down a natural rock water slide. We stay at this local favourite place until the very last person is ready to leave.


It's time to blare out some tunes on the bus as we head back to Cairns! If the fun filled day hasn’t worn you out, join the group drink or two at a local bar!
