Enjoy a day immersed in nature on this excursion to the Atherton Tablelands from Cairns. Discover beautiful waterfalls and a spectacular lake.
Atherton Tablelands Tour
After picking you up from your hotel in Cairns at 7 am, we'll set off by minibus towards the Atherton Tablelands, a highland region of northern Australia known for its incredible natural landscapes and wealth of wildlife.
On the journey, which will take around two hours, we'll enjoy a delicious breakfast of tea, fruit and pastries. With plenty of energy, we'll explore the Atherton Tablelands Waterfalls, visiting the Millaa Millaa Falls, Dinner Falls and the Josephine Falls. There'll be time at each to take photos of the beautiful scenery and even to take a refreshing dip in the falls!
We'll delve into the rainforest that covers much of the region, and amongst its lush vegetation we might even get to spot some wildlife native to Australia, like cassowaries, a type of large flightless bird. Keep your eyes peeled!
At lunchtime, we'll take a break for a picnic of sandwiches, salads and fruit, before heading to the famous Lake Eacham. Did you know this lake is of volcanic origin? You'll hear all about its formation while admiring the views, and you'll also have time to have a swim!
We'll then have tea and fruit and make the journey back to Cairns for 6:30 pm.
