What to Expect
After pickup from your Cairns hotel, set out on the approximately 2-hour drive into the Atherton Tablelands region. Depending on the itinerary chosen, start your tour either with a scenic cruise around Barrine Crater Lake, followed by a delicious Devonshire morning tea and a guided walk to see the Twin Kauri Trees. Continue your tour, discovering the many natural wonders of the tablelands, including photo stops at Heales Lookout, Yungaburra, and Crawford’s Lookout; a visit to landmarks, such as the Curtain Fig Tree and the Babinda Boulders; and a refreshing swim beneath the Millau Millau Falls (depending on the season). A couple of tour itineraries also allow you to tuck into an all-you-can-eat hot buffet lunch at Roscoe’s Piazza. Finally, enjoy a guided tour of Petronella Park, followed by free time to explore, before setting out on the return journey. Back in Cairns, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
