Stop At: Babinda Boulders, The Boulders Road, Babinda, Queensland Australia

Our first stop for the day is Babinda Boulders, this is a very well-known location as it is a significant place for the local indigenous people. During the 45 minutes here we will show you around the amazing site and tell you the history and legends of the boulders - there are a few spooky stories! This is considered one of Cairns' must visit spots especially during times of heavy rain the strength of the water passing through the boulders has to be seen to be believed!

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Josephine Falls, Bartle Frere Wooroonooran National Park, Cairns, Queensland 4861 Australia

Next stop (and our first swimming spot!) is Josephine Falls! A short walk on an even pathway will bring you through the rainforest to the crystal clear waters and natural rock slide of the falls! Slip and slide down, cool off in the blue water or take advantage of the stunning scenery and take a few photos.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Millaa Millaa Falls, Millaa Millaa, Queensland Australia

Next we will head up the Palmerston Highway onto the Atherton Tablelands to the most photographed waterfall in Australia! Millaa Millaa Falls are known worldwide for it's inclusion in the Herbal Essences and Qantas adverts. Here is the place to try the iconic hair flick or get a natural massage from the water cascading over the falls. World Famous and a must see on the Tablelands!

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Malanda, Malanda, Queensland

A well earned rest is coming up next, with lunch at Queensland's largest timber pub, Malanda Pub. Lunch is included but you can also purchase additional drinks if you like and take a break from the swimming.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mt. Hypipamee National Park, Kennedy Highway, Malanda, Queensland 4883 Australia

After lunch, we'll head over to beautiful Dinner falls and the incredible Mount Hypipamee Crater. Dinner Falls is home to some wonderful wildlife and it is not unusual for us to see Lumholz's Tree Kangaroos and Cassowaries in this National Park.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park, Lake Eacham, Queensland Australia

Our last swim for the day is at Lake Eacham. Lake Eacham is a beautiful volcanic Crater Lake-heated from within and maintaining a steady 27 degrees water temperature all year round! Deep blue waters will certainly tempt you in for one last swim. Spot turtles in the shallows or just lay back and enjoy the last golden sunlight of the day.

Angela July 2021

A great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Really nice places to visit. Pub meal was a bit disappointing.

Rosemary July 2021

Great experience except for the weather! Sam our tour guide was fantastic. Great knowledge and a careful courteous driver.

Kelvin July 2021

Overall an very enjoyable and well presented bus trip. Our humourous and knowledgeable bus driver Jim helped make it a memorable day for us all to experience the rainforest walks, some swimming, climbing and sliding down a rock formation in the cool clear river waters of the Atherton Tablelands waterfalls. There were rainforest features such as the Curtain fig tree, spotting some wetland wildlife: such as fish, turtles, bush turkeys. I saw my first platypus swimming in the wild from a creek bank 3 meters away. The lunch and drinks break was quite an interesting stop at the historic 'Big Hotel' built by a pioneering family in grand style from locally cut and milled timbers mainly red cedar.

Natalie June 2021

Josephine Falls were so fun, although it was June the water was still lovely. Carlos the tour guide did a fantastic job and Platypus were sighted!

Bernie June 2021

Carlos our guide and driver was fantastic, very informative and had everyone safety in mind at all times.
All the beautiful places we visited were all very worthwhile and enjoyable.

Fiona B May 2021

Fantastic tour. Jim was a fantastic driver/guide. The waterfalls were fantastic, lunch was great local pub food. Wish I hadn’t eaten breakfast before the first stop, those pies at the bakery looked scrumptious. The tour was a perfect balance of exploring and swimming.

Fiona B May 2021

Great day. James the bus driver/tour guide was the best ever. Waterfalls were amazing, husband had fun sliding down rocks and swimming under the waterfall.

Iveth Andrea S May 2021

I had an amazing day! Andy took us to different beautiful waterfalls and explained us everything about the places. It was a fun and beautiful day, which was a great opportunity for me to visit new places and meet nice people. Our Tourist guide was THE BEST and the price
