See all the best bits of the Atherton Tablelands on this chilled day trip!
This fun day trip by Barefoot Tours is absolutely the best way for young and young-at-heart travellers to experience the Atherton Tablelands. Starting early in Cairns, you'll board a minibus with 18 other travellers and be entertained by your guide as head into the rainforest. The cool thing about this tour is the flexible itinerary, meaning you won't ever feel like you're just being rushed from one place to the next. Your tour guides have a cheeky, slightly non-PC style of humour and enjoy some good banter.
Throughout the day you'll take dips at some of Cairns most impressive waterfalls (Millaa Millaa falls, Dinner falls, Elinjaa falls), slide down the natural rock slide at Josephine falls, explore the mystic curtain of roots set by a half a century old (Cathedral or) Curtain Fig tree, and swim in the volcanic crater lake known as Lake Eacham. You'll make new friends and enjoy a tropical morning tea, a yummy picnic lunch and snack on Aussie Tim Tams!
This rainforest and waterfalls adventure promises to be full of laughs, adventures and classic Aussie experiences - book your spot today!
Barefoot Tours is a Cairns-based small tour company. All of Barefoot Tour's guides have all been involved in tourism and tour guiding for many years. They have travelled extensively throughout Australia and the world, finally settling down in one of their favourite places, Cairns, in the beautiful Far North Queensland.
All Barefoot Tour's guides are excellent swimmers with experience in water safety, so if you tend to impersonate a rock while swimming, don’t worry, you’re in pretty good hands. All guides are required to possess the following: First Aid & CPR training, police checks; water safety/rescue skills; know how to have fun; love to laugh; cheeky, slightly non-PC humour; and the ability to make a good sandwich.
Rainforest is incredible with the amazing curtain fig tree, all kinds of banksia, and uniquely shaped plants. Wildlife is incredible with the turkeys valiantly walking through the trees and the platypus adorably swimming with its little cute forelimbs. The three waterfalls are incredible, incredible, and incredible, especially for swimming lovers and fun adventurers. Overall, everything is incredible, incredible, incredible and truly worths to experience.
The sights we saw were definitely 5 stars - the Millaa Millaa falls were my favorite and it was amazing to swim right up to it! The other stops were also great and I loved seeing all these sights. The tour itself was good as well but I felt like it was missing something - while it provided everything it advertised, it felt like it was missing a certain wow factor. I think it was a combination of my group being pretty low energy and our tour guide, Gabs, being very new to this position - she was still amazing (great voice and ukulele skills!) but was still figuring things out a bit. Overall still very satisfied and glad I went on this tour!
Literally had the best day with the best guide - Daryl, he is such a legend! It rained all day but it was still great, he took us all over and knew al about the history which was great. The views and waterfalls are breathtaking. I would highly recommend anyone coming to cairns to do this tour! Lots of food and snacks through the day! I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Did the Atherton your with Daryl and it was awesome even if it was a rainy day. Daryl gives you a lot of informations about the wild, nature, animals, plants. Also about history and travelling. We had a really great time I definitely recommend this place.
Epic tour! Tour guides are awesome. Can't remember laughing so much in a long time :p
