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.

One of the most amazing places we have been to while enjoying our stay in beautiful Cairns. The best part of the tour though was the tour guide Brett. Very knowledgeable and informative which kept the drive entertaining for the whole trip. It was a long and tiring day in the

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's always lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our full day Waterfalls, Rainforest and Paronella Park day tour. I'm glad that Simon made you feel so welcome and was able to help you to experience this area with plenty of time at each of our attractions. Being a small group tour, we do try to take the time to allow flexibility in your day and if that means taking time out to show our clients something we think they will enjoy, then we can. Our day is as much about the people as it about the area we visit and our guides do go above and beyond because they love it as much as you will. Thank you for traveling with us. Regards Louise

I had a day to fill in whilst in Cairns and the tour desk at my hotel suggested this tour. I'm so glad they did! It was a small group (20 people) with a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Everything was very well organised and the scenery was absolutely stunning.
