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.
Day Tour of Atherton Tablelands Waterfalls Cairns
Join us on our legendary Cairns tour – one that’s chill, fun and all about nature.
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.
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!
Not a fan of water, don’t worry, there’s still plenty for you to see and do! If your lucky enough you may be able to spot some of Australia’s endemic wildlife in the Rainforest like the famous Cassowaries.
Rainy Days are generally more adventurous we see more, do more, really get into it and chase those waterfalls!
Sunny days we find people tend to take their time a little more, soak in the sun, relax!!
So, if you are ready to have your shoes blown away by Barefoot Tours then join up for a fun, stress-free day in the amazing Atherton Tablelands… Come and discover Australia’s unique landscapes with Barefoot Tours!!
