Join us for your dream Cairns tour – one that’s chill, fun and all about nature. We’ll show you all the best things to do in the tropical oasis of the Atherton Tablelands, from taking a dip beneath some of Cairns most epic waterfalls to exploring the mystic curtain of roots set by a half a century old tree. If your lucky enough you may be able to spot some of Australia’s endemic wildlife in the Rainforest like the famous Cassowaries
Just a day trip from Cairns, you’ll feel a world away. Meet new friends, discover Australia’s unique landscape and chow down on a box of Tim Tams at the end of it all. Let’s go!
We are not strict with the itinerary and often throw in other stops or change locations depending on time/weather, and sometimes we run the whole tour backwards for shits and giggles!!
These are the regular stops: Cathedral Fig Tree, Lake Eacham, Dinner Falls and The Crater, Millaa Millaa Falls, Josephine Falls
All meals are included during the day.
Offered Daily | $109 per person

What to Bring
Togs, swimmers, bathers, bikini, boardies, (whatever you like to call them!!). If you’d rather go naked, that’s fine too!!
A dry change of clothes (maybe something warm in winter)
Sunscreen– watch out for that good ol’ Aussie sun, otherwise you’ll be a lobster before you know it! A hat’s not a bad idea either
Insect repellent for those pesky mozzies
Footwear– whatever you’re comfortable with (no high heels please ladies!). Easy tracks, so thongs are fine
We recently went on a day trip on Barefoot Tours to all the remote waterfalls in the area. Josephinefalls were the best. The guide was amazing and super friendly. Can’t recommend these guys enough.” -TripAdvisor Review
We try to take photos to upload, however this is not a guarantee… Might be a tech issue, or our guides just f*** it up. Please do not rely on our camera
(it’s free & sometimes a slow service).
This tour welcomes those aged 10 years and older. No max age limit, but you do need to be fairly fit and healthy and ok on your feet (some of the tracks can be a little tricky otherwise).
Your Atherton Tablelands tour kicks off around 7am from any Cairns city hotel (or hostel) in our fun bright orange bus!
We customize our route/timings on a daily basis, based on the customers and the weather that nature delivers each day… The main sights are lisited in order and sometimes we do them backwards.
Barefoot Tours returns around 6-7:30pm. We can return you to your Cairns city hotel (or hostel) or we can drop you off anywhere in the Cairns CBD city area.
Unfortunately we are unable to pick up (or drop off) at the Northern beaches (too lazy sorry). If driving in, we suggest you select Cairns City Backpackers (274 Draper St) as your pickup location as you can park there all day for free.
So, if you are ready to have your socks blown away by Barefoot Tours then join up for a fun, safe, relaxed day in the amazing Atherton Tablelands, Cairns region, Australia. We recommend booking in advance to avoid missing out!
