"A spectacular scenic Tablelands tour viewing Lake Barrine, Curtain Fig Tree, Waterfalls Circuit, World Heritage Rainforests and Paronella Park and Wildlife. Tours departing Cairns' coast, our tour ascends the Lamb Range providing panoramic views of the Mulgrave River Valley from Heale's Lookout.

The high elevation rainforests of the Atherton and Southern Tablelands are vastly different to coastal rainforest surrounding Cairns and support a wide variety of wildlife, many species being unique to the Tablelands.  

Enjoy freshly baked scones and morning Devonshire tea before boarding the first morning cruise on the calm waters of the extinct volcanic crater, Lake Barrine. Be the first cruise in the morning to view the Lake's abundant wildlife and marvel at the vibrant, old growth World Heritage listed rainforest surrounding Lake Barrine whose deep waters are filled by crystal clear rainwater. Back on land a short walk reveals the Twin Kauri Pine Trees - amongst Australia's largest trees, these 1000 year old forest giants are relics of the past.

Your experienced Cairns tours driver/guide will escort you along boardwalks to the ancient Giant Curtain Fig Tree - an amazing accomplishment of nature! The surrounding forest is also home to the elusive and shy Lumholz Tree Kangaroos. 

We then commence our tour of the Waterfalls Circuit . Each of the waterfalls is unique and is viewed from a different aspect. All waterfalls flow in abundance all year round! 

Commencing with world-famous Millaa Millaa Falls (featured in many commercial television advertisements and films where a quick swim is possible) then drive along quaint country farming roads and rich dairying pastures."
