Private Waterfall Tour Cairns

This is one of my most popular tours, especially during Queensland's wet season (December - March) when the waterfalls are at their best. But don't despair if you visit our region in the dry season. There are still plenty of spectacular waterfalls that flow all year round surrounded by incredibly scenic country.

You will be supplied with morning tea and fresh bottled water. We stop at one of our well-renowned local cafes or restaurants for a hearty lunch that wont disappoint, and your guide, (that's me) Darrin, will impress you with a balanced mix of expert local commentary, and a keen sense of Aussie humour.

Best of all, you get to see and do what you want to do during the tour, because I tailor the day to suit your tastes, likes and level of fitness. This is a tour you will talk about for years to come and for all the right reasons.


Travel up to the southern Tablelands observing spectacular world heritage listed scenery to our first destination, Lake Barrine. Enjoy a freshly made, piping hot devonshire morning tea.
Visit one of the most spectacular strangler figs in the Tableland's rainforests, the Curtain Fig Tree, over 500 years old.
Journey to Malanda Falls, then Mount Hypipamee Crater, Dinner Falls, Millaa Millaa lookout before we take in the awesome beauty of the world famous Millaa Millaa Falls, a great place for a quick swim on a hot day.
After your swim, make your way to Zilliee Falls, and Ellinjaa Falls.
Now it's time to enjoy a huge country home made lunch, prepared to your dietary requirements tastes and liking.
Travel deeper into the Tablelands, to Mungalli Falls, visit the 100% organic dairy. Finally we make our way down the range, to visit Josephine Falls. This waterfall boasts a natural rock water-slide into the crystal clear fresh water swimming pool a truly magnificent end to the day, before our trip back to Cairns.
