Your day commences as you journey south of Cairns to Babinda Boulders. Babinda Boulders is a popular swimming hole and picnic area for locals and tourists, and a place of spiritual significance for Aboriginal people. 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.
Millaa Millaa Falls:
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!
Stop for lunch at Millaa Millaa or Malanda (BYO or purchase).
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.

Very pleased with my experience
This tour allows you to see many sites for a really good price. I would recommend this tour to anyone who really wants to see the Daintree rainforest and all the things in between. Andy was an awesome tour guide who made the tour very enjoyable. He even took some pictures of my sister and I at Millaa Millaa Falls. Definitely very pleased with my experience

The places that we were brought to were beautiful and lots of fun. The guide was very cool about everything and made the entire trip very relaxing. He tried very hard to get everyone talking to each other, which created a very nice community during the course of the day. We also really liked the kangaroo steak pie at the tree kangaroo cafe.

I think we could have had more of a variety for lunch.
I think we could have had more of a variety for lunch. We stopped out of town where there was no competition so we had to purchase our lunch at the Tree Kangaroo Cafe where there was not alot of variety. Should have stopped in town. Other than that the rest of the day was terrific

This was absolutely the most fantastic day. Innes the tour guide was fantastic - the best tour guide I have ever come across in all my world travels. He certainly made the day. Would have loved to go to more of the waterfalls in the area, but it was great to get to swim in some of them. Fantastic day!

a truly unforgettable experience
Another excellent example of an outstanding tour guide. Barry was a truly magnificent guy. Very courteous, friendly and went that extra mile to make our tour of the Tablelands a truly unforgettable experience. Another bulls eye.

This tour is aimed solely at backpackers. If it had not been for the tour guide I would not have enjoyed the day as much being as I was twice the age of all the others

Loved the waterfall waterslide
Cairns and especially the tablelands tour is the highlight of our 4 week trip up the east coast. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with our bus driver \\\"Captain Kiwi Matty\\\" as he is one of the rare breed of tour guide that still thoroughly enjoys their job and keeping his guests happy. This was the cheapest of our booked day trips and by far the best value for money. Josephine Falls is now on my top destinations list. Loved the waterfall waterslide. 10/10!
