We tour south of Cairns for a full day out travelling through the magnificent World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforests of Wooroonooran National Park, swimming in waterfalls, travelling through the Atherton Tablelands, viewing Volcano’s and visiting local must see attractions such as Millaa Millaa, Mena Creek & Theresa Falls; Lake Barrine, Curtain Fig Tree, extended touring time at Paronella Park (voted #1 must see attraction in Queensland) and much more.

Northern Experience has a wealth of local and historical knowledge and a firm commitment to the comfort, fun, entertainment and enjoyment of our guests.

The Tour Itinerary

Babinda Boulders

Departure from Cairns, we head south passing the Walsh's Pyramid mountain one of the largest naturally formed Pyramids in the world, here we will stop for a photo before starting our journey up the World Heritage listed Gillies Highway climbing 730 metres above sea level into the amazing Atherton Tablelands. Along the way, you will view spectacular scenery with a photo opportunity at Heales lookout. This stunning lookout overlooks the breathtaking Goldbourgh Valley and beyond to the Great Dividing Range, Australia's longest range system.

Our first touring stop is the beautiful Lake Barrine Crater Lake National Park where the Options A & B enjoy delicious freshly baked scones with jam & cream accompanied by locally grown & freshly brewed Tea and coffee (unlimited cup refills).

Then the Option A pax depart on a 40 minute guided wildlife cruise on the lake.

The Option B & C pax can relax in the Tea House overlooking the Crater Lake or take a leisurely walk through the National Park rainforest walking tracks viewing two 1000-year-old Kauri Pines.

We all then meet back onto the bus & travel through extensive beef, dairy, sugar cane & other diverse types of farming areas & small villages.

Next stop is The Curtain Fig Tree, an amazing feat of nature reaching 45+ metres up into the tropical rainforest canopy. This is a boardwalk with plenty of time for photographs of the 600-800-year-old epiphyte.

After a 30 minute drive through the Malanda dairy lands, we arrive at the Millaa Millaa Falls - with the option of swimming under the cool waters falling 20 metres over an ancient volcanic lava flow from over 1 million years ago.

We then descend from the Tablelands down the Palmerstone Highway through sugar cane & banana fields to the coastal town of Innisfail.

On arrival, we begin our delicious Lunch at Roscoe's all you can eat Hot buffet for Option A & B pax. There are other food outlets available for the Option C pax.

Paronella Park is the next destination with a 45 minute guided tour in English, Chinese or Japanese of the extensive National Trust Gardens. We spend approximately two hours here. If passengers are requiring more time, please feel free to approach your driver to arrange for this. This is where you will learn of Hosea Paronella's wonderful achievements & His colourful history of how he built his Spanish Castle in the rainforest.

After being inspired by Paronella Park, we head north back towards Cairns stopping at a local banana farm where you can purchase cheap bananas, papaya & homegrown, homemade chocolate.

From here we continue our journey back to Cairns passing Queensland's two highest mountains, Mt Bartle Frere (1,622 metres) and Mt Bellender Ker (1,593 metres); these spectacular mountains are the backdrop of Australia's wettest town called Babinda with an annual rainfall total of 4,200mm.

From Babinda it is an approximate a 50-60 minute drive back to the city of Cairns & returns to your accommodation.

What is Paronella Park?

Everyone has a dream but not everyone’s dreams are fulfilled. José Paronella’s dream was to build a castle. He chose a special
part of Australia and created Paronella Park. On 5 Hectares beside Mena Creek Fall's he built his castle, picnic area by the falls,
tennis courts, bridges, a tunnel, and wrapped it up in an amazing range of 7,500 tropical plants and trees (now a lush Rainforest)

The natural beauty of the Park immediately immerses visitors to the surroundings of Paronella Park. Guests can explore the
enchanting grounds through a series of winding paths and bridges that snake through the forest and Castle ruins. The paths that wind through Paronella Park have been designed in such a way to provide unusual and somewhat secretive vistas of Mena Creek Falls.

It opened to the public in 1935 and has received multiple Queensland tourism awards, is State and National Heritage listed and is a National Trust listed property. It is privately owned and operated and Eco accredited.

Paronella Park is the site of Queensland’s 1st privately owned hydroelectric plant

This is a must see attraction while holidaying here in Far Northern Queensland!

0 Such a great day out

Decided to do this tour as it was recommended to us by another traveller, glad we did it. Brett was so informative, showed us all the must see sights and bonus stops; we had a great lunch, saw wildlife and swam under a magical waterfall. Paronella Park was such an inspiration and we even finished off the day with another swim in the clear waters of Babinda Boulders. Highly recommend this tour as it has a bit of everything. (better than the Daintree Tour we did)

0 Great day out

I went on the Rainforest Waterfalls Paronella Park Option A Day Tour (Cairns Highlands) earlier this week and have much enjoyed the experience. This was my very first tour from Cairns. I particularly enjoyed Paronella Park although there was a wide variety of beautiful scenic attractions on offer. The tour guide Brett was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. I left my jacket at Roscoe's Piazza in Innisfail during lunch, and Brett was very helpful in picking it up on the way back:) Can recommend!
