Learn about the Aboriginal significance of this area before a short 1.3km, return walk to the Devil's Pool to two viewing platforms. View the creek as it cascades down a series of spectacular waterfalls, granite boulders and washpools.

  • From here journey further south to Josephine Falls - a picturesque waterfall fed by rains falling on Queensland’s highest mountain, Bartle Frere.  A track will lead you through tropical rainforest, to viewing decks overlooking the Josephine Creek and Falls. Below the falls are several swimming holes surrounded by boulders and a popular water slide down a smooth sloping rock face between pools. Remember to bring your swimmers for a very refreshing swim only if it is safe to do so. Your Guide will decide on the day.

  • Travel onto the Atherton Tablelands via the Palmerston Highway to Millaa Millaa Falls, stopping at Crawford Lookout on the way. Millaa Millaa Falls is a magnificent waterfalls surrounded by lush rainforest. The falls cascade perfectly to a pristine waterhole below where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool water. It is one of the most photographed in all of Australia, so make sure you bring your camera!

  • As you head into Malanda, visit the Malanda Environmental Park located on the out-skirts of Malanda. Also visit the famous Curtain Fig Tree. Here the raised platforms give you a great photo opportunity. You will go platypus spotting before arriving at Lake Eacham in the late afternoon.

  • Following this will be a visit to Lake Eacham which is an extinct volcanic crater lake filled with cool, clean, crystal clear water, surrounded by 1200acres of lush tropical highland rainforest.  You can enjoy a quiet swim in still water, and/or do some bird spotting or just enjoy a peaceful time here.
