Overview
The Atherton Tablelands are part of Queensland’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics rainforest and lie just southwest of Cairns. On this tour, enjoy ample time to explore the region’s natural wonders, including the Cathedral Fig Tree; hike through the rainforest and cool off with a swim at Lake Eacham; and visit three waterfalls—Josephine Falls, Millaa Millaa Falls, and Dinner Falls.

Russell our tour guide took us on a day of seeing waterfalls, lakes and a giant fig tree! He also prepared a light lunch for us of cold meats, salad and rolls and fresh fruits. He was full of information on the areas we visited. Would recommend this tour

Thanks Maclean - we are glad they cancelled out too, as we were able to take you instead :-) Our guides do an amazing job at showing their backyard to the world and teaching you something about it... We don't run off any scripts or anything like that, so it is their passion with their delivery. Josephine falls is one of my favs too - i love the water slide! Safe Travelling

Thanks for fab feedback Kelly! Russ is a keeper - actually they both are, we love working together with them to showcase the Tablelands Rainforest & Waterfalls (& lake). I love Josephine falls too, and am really missing nature (due to travel ban in place) We hope you had a brilliant holiday in Australia and were able to travel home safetly. Chels @ Barefoot Tours
