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.

Denise and I are divided on the best part. Denise loved Paronella Park; I did too, but enjoyed Lake Barine and the forest trail a bit more. The Babinda Boulders swimming area is also so peaceful.... a wonderful place to relax. Carsten’s broad-ranging knowledge and experience

Very entertaining, thanks Mandy. Nice to be greeted at the car park and the entrance. November was hot, but worth doing with no crowds. Covid also made places like this quiet. Heads up, camping comes as a part of your ticket.
