Now you know a little bit about the Atherton Tablelands, it’s time to introduce you to the top attractions in the region.
Starting near the town of Millaa Millaa there’s a 15km circuit that embraces some of the best waterfalls in the Atherton Tablelands region.
The waterfall is surrounded by lush rainforest. The water cascades into a pristine waterhole, perfect for swimming on those tropical humid days.
The viewing platform is at the top of Zillie Falls, but there is a muddy track (when it rains) taking you down to the bottom of the falls to see the cascading waterfall and rapids.
There’s a beautiful walk through the rainforest across the road from the falls and if you look up you might be lucky to spot a tree kangaroo.
This Curtain Fig Tree is incredible. It spans several metres across and the vines drape 15 metres down giving a lovely curtain effect.
