The Tour Itinerary

Babinda Boulders

Departure from Cairns to travel the Gillies Highway climbing 730 metres above sea level into the amazing Atherton Tablelands.

Our first stop is beautiful Lake Barrine Crater Lake National Park where the Options A & B enjoy a delicious freshly baked scones with jam & cream accompanied by locally grown & freshly brewed Tea and coffee (unlimited cup refills).

Then the Option A pax depart on a 40 minute guided wild life cruise on the lake.
The Option B & C pax can relax in the Tea House overlooking the Crater Lake or take a leisurely walk through the National Park rainforest walking tracks viewing two 1000 year old Kauri Pines.

We all then meet back onto the bus & travel through extensive beef, dairy, sugar cane & other diverse types of farming areas & small villages.

Next stop is The Curtain Fig Tree, an amazing feat of nature reaching 45+ metres up into the tropical rainforest canopy. This is a board walk with plenty of time for photographs of the 600-800 year old epiphyte.

After a 30 minute drive through the Malanda dairy lands we arrive at the Millaa Millaa Falls - with the option of swimming under the cool waters falling 20 metres over an ancient volcanic lava flow from over 1 million years ago.

We then descend from the Tablelands down the Palmerstone Highway through sugar cane & banana fields to the coastal town of Innisfail.

On arrival we begin our delicious Lunch at Roscoe's all you can eat Hot buffet for Option A & B pax.

Paronella Park is the next destination with a 45 minute guided tour in English, Chinese or Japanese of the extensive National Trust Gardens. We spend approximately one and a half to two hours here.

This is where you will learn of Hosea Paronella's wonderful achievements & His colourful history of how he built his Spanish Castle in the rainforest.

After a quick stop at a local banana farm where you can purchase cheap bananas, papaya & home grown, homemade chocolate, we continue north bound to the small town of Babinda.

Fun Facts

By Atherton Tablelands Tour: World Heritage Rainforest, Breathtaking Waterfalls & the famous "Must See" attraction, Paronella Park

25 Feb 2017

The Hercules Moth is the largest moth found in Australia. Females of the Hercules Moth have a wingspan of up to 27cm and the largest wing area of any moth in the world. The caterpillar starts off life as a rusty-red egg laid singly or in small groups, glued to the underside of the host plant’s leaf. It hatches out and very quickly becomes a spectacular pale-blue-green caterpillar that can grow to a length of 12 cm and weigh up to 30 g. Two large, false eyes at their rear end, appear to deter potential attackers. The caterpillar feeds on leaves of several rainforest trees but prefers those of the Bleeding Heart. Adult moths do not feed and are short-lived (approx. 4-days). These beautiful Moths live only in New Guinea and Tropical Queensland.

Atherton Tablelands Tour: World Heritage Rainforest, Breathtaking Waterfalls & the famous "Must See" attraction, Paronella Park Reviews

Sa

0 Such a great day out

Decided to do this tour as it was recommended to us by another traveller, glad we did it. Brett was so informative, showed us all the must see sights and bonus stops; we had a great lunch, saw wildlife and swam under a magical waterfall. Paronella Park was such an inspiration and we even finished off the day with another swim in the clear waters of Babinda Boulders. Highly recommend this tour as it has a bit of everything. (better than the Daintree Tour we did)

0 Great day out

I went on the Rainforest Waterfalls Paronella Park Option A Day Tour (Cairns Highlands) earlier this week and have much enjoyed the experience. This was my very first tour from Cairns. I particularly enjoyed Paronella Park although there was a wide variety of beautiful scenic attractions on offer. The tour guide Brett was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. I left my jacket at Roscoe's Piazza in Innisfail during lunch, and Brett was very helpful in picking it up on the way back:) Can recommend!
