Depart your central Cairns or Northern Beaches hotel by air-conditioned bus and venture into rural North Queensland. Composed of highlands, tropical rainforests, and waterfalls, this pristine region is renowned for its beauty and ancient culture.

Visit the Babinda Boulders, a tropical creek lined with huge boulders, and hear about the aboriginal legends that surround this magical-looking place. Then head to your first swim spot, Josephine Falls, and slide down the natural rock slide.

Continue to the Atherton Tablelands and swim in the Millaa Millaa Falls. Bordered by protected rainforest, this 59-foot (18-meter) single-drop waterfall has featured in several TV ads.

After a country-style lunch at Australia’s largest timber pub, continue to Mt. Hypipamee Crater, a pipe-shaped, 278-foot (85-meter) deep crater. Take a bushland walk to admire the crater lake, watch for wildlife like possum and emu-like cassowarys, and stop to bathe in the idyllic Dinner Falls.

After visiting a creek to search for platypus, enjoy another swim and a sunset stop at Lake Eacham, famous for its turtles.

Finally, return to Cairns, perhaps playing the provided games on your bus before your trip ends at the original starting point.

Spectacular walks and waterfalls
, Feb 2020
What a wonderful day! Our tour guide, Jim, went out of his way to show us wildlife and other things that needed to be searched out along the way. The scenery was gorgeous and swimming opportunities were outstanding. I enthusiastically recommend this tour.
Best waterfall tour I've been on
, Feb 2020
This tour was amazing. You see so many sights within the day that is so worth the early rise (I was collected from Palm Cove). Jim our tour guide was great, he had timed his music with the up coming fall/ section of the road that we were at and all his jokes had me laughing for ages. Plus he takes pictures so that you have memories of the day incase you don't want to get your camera wet. Just be aware on the way back there is a 19km stretch of road with 226 turns (not for those who get car sick) however after the first few it improves.
Fantastic Waterfalls

Thoroughly enjoyed our small group trip to see boulders, waterfalls, volcanic craters. Our guide's enthusiasm despite the rain was great - as was his knowledge. Thanks Tom - we had a great day.
