Overview
The Atherton Tablelands are part of Queensland’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics rainforest and lie just southwest of Cairns. On this tour, enjoy ample time to explore the region’s natural wonders, including the Cathedral Fig Tree; hike through the rainforest and cool off with a swim at Lake Eacham; and visit three waterfalls—Josephine Falls, Millaa Millaa Falls, and Dinner Falls.

Thanks Maclean - we are glad they cancelled out too, as we were able to take you instead :-) Our guides do an amazing job at showing their backyard to the world and teaching you something about it... We don't run off any scripts or anything like that, so it is their passion with their delivery. Josephine falls is one of my favs too - i love the water slide! Safe Travelling

Thanks for fab feedback Kelly! Russ is a keeper - actually they both are, we love working together with them to showcase the Tablelands Rainforest & Waterfalls (& lake). I love Josephine falls too, and am really missing nature (due to travel ban in place) We hope you had a brilliant holiday in Australia and were able to travel home safetly. Chels @ Barefoot Tours

Probably our favourite tour of all the tours we’ve done on the east coast. Our tour guide Darrell was the perfect Aussie and made the experience what it was. We got to go to many waterfalls including Milla Milla and Joesphine which were gorgeous and some of the rainforest.

My friend and I booked the tour for our last day in Australia after I've lived and worked here for 8 months. And what can I say I had the best time. I liked that everyone was very close from the beginning, our tourguide helped with that by making everyone introduce themselves.

Thanks Helena, so glad you both could join us and it's great to see you felt we were great value, even after living here for 8 months already! Sometimes I think it's the people you meet along the way that can make an amazing place even better... Our guides do a great job at introducing everyone to everyone, as our guests are equally as awesome ;-P We like to focus on your satisfaction, to make sure your well looked after and given the best experience of Cairns, as a region.. A huge part of that for us, is our passionate local guides, supporting and buying local produce where ever possible, flexibility on our tours and if you wanna stay longer - no problems! Thank you for your support, for your feedback on our day tours and for booking through us - all these things mean the world to us and we love showing the world our backyard :-) Chelsea @ Barefoot Tours
