Join us on our legendary Cairns tour – one that’s chill, fun and all about nature.

We have a cheeky, slightly non-PC style of humour and enjoy some good banter… We carry decent coffee, cadbury hot choc, local tea and a hearty homestyle lunch! Having a flexible itinerary means you don’t have to spend the day rushing from one place to the next, sometimes we change it up, add stops or do the whole tour backwards just for shits and giggles.

Leave Cairns on an adventure with Barefoot Tours, through World Heritage listed Rainforest, home to stunning waterfalls like Ellinjaa Falls, Josephine falls, Dinner falls and on towards some of the most beautiful locations in the Atherton Tablelands!

We’ll show you all the best things to do in the tropical oasis of the Atherton Tablelands, from taking a dip at some of Cairns most epic waterfalls (Millaa Millaa falls, Dinner falls, Elinjaa falls), to sliding down the natural rock slide at Josephine falls, to exploring the mystic curtain of roots set by a half a century old (Cathedral or) Curtain Fig tree, and Swimming in the volcanic crater lake known as Lake Eacham. If your lucky enough you may be able to spot some of Australia’s endemic wildlife in the Rainforest like the famous Cassowaries.

Snap the perfect picture from beneath the cascading Millaa Milla Falls, explore the sights with your new found friends, enjoy a tropical morning tea, a yummy picnic lunch and good ol’ Aussie Tim Tams! So, if you are ready to have your shoes blown away by Barefoot Tours then join up for a fun day in the amazing Atherton Tablelands… Come and discover Australia’s unique landscapes with Barefoot Tours!!

We are all about nature, fun, beautiful swimming locations and love a good laugh!

Relaxed Fun & Beautiful Places

This tour was such an easy way to see some of Australia’s most beautiful places. Epic trees, massive rocks, cold waterfalls, great music, and a super-fun & interesting guide, Gabs, made this day unforgettable. Keep it up! If anyone gives you a tough time, they’re lame.

Absolutely fabulous

Awesome day from go to whoa.! Magnificent scenery. The serenity & beauty of forest nature highlighted by spectacular waterfalls. Sheer joy of swimming in pure deep pools & the adrenaline rush of Josephine falls natural waterslide. Thanks to our gorgeous guide gabby who made our day fun, bonding us with her quirky jokes, music & dance, food & treats. Top of my tour list (at 60yrs l have done plenty). ta for an unforgettable day. It was my dream day. I was better prepared for than most for cool wet day but wish I had an even warmer jacket with me after so much swimming, your blankets were needed. thanks for great day.

Unforgettable Experience

It might have been winter in Australia, but we beat the cold and had so much fun on this day trip! It had been recommended to us by a friend, and after three days on the Great Barrier Reef we were ready for a change of scenery and the rainforest was a fantastic choice. Will definitely be recommending to friends if staying in the Cairns area! A few thoughts: 1) pickup was easy and flexible; 2) Daz was incredibly informative and entertaining (and had great music!) - we learned so much about the area; 3) the locations are so beautiful and each was different from the last; 4) it was super cold (I mean, even in the summer, these are bodies of running water so I'm sure they're always cold), but as soon as you jumped in you got over it! 5) my husband and I could have played on that natural waterslide all. Day. Long.

Waterfall fun

Had such a great day with our guide Daryl. He is very knowledgeable, and always trying to get a laugh. Took us to some great waterfalls + view points and also found us some crocs to see! Water was a bit on the chilly side but we powered through 😆

Amazing Day!

Our tour guide Tery was so funny. We all had a very relaxed day full of laughter. We were a group of just 15 people so you could talk to everyone easily. We visited some waterfalls, made some great pictures, had some lunch and fruit and Tim Tams. Tery stopped and just bought us all some bananas and then showed us how to open a coconut. There was no stress and everything was very relaxed and spontaneously. The price is more than okay for what is offered. 👍🏽

A fun day - minus the racism

I thoroughly enjoyed the day on the Atherton Tablelands Tour. The weather was perfect and we visited a number of very beautiful swimming locations. The guide was friendly and the music in the bus was surprisingly very good.

Waterfalls Tour with Gabs

Gabs was the best guide I ever had in a daytrip. Always joking and making the whole bus laugh! The trip was even better than I expected. Only a small group of 16 people. We went swimming under a waterfall and the lunch option was great! Would definitly recommend the trip.

Fantastic day thanks to Gabi our tour guide

We did the Atherton tour waterfalls and rainforest it was stunningly beautiful, but the cherry on the cake was our tour guide Gabi, not only was she very knowledgeable about the area but also made the day fun, she didn’t over egg the cake by yapping too much about nothing like some guides do, she kept everyone on our tour interested without it becoming boring, she was funny Knowledgeable and just a great person to spend the day with. Thank you Barefoot Tours but most of all thank you Gabi xx Ps the lunch and coffee was also very good.
