Day 1: Waterfall Wanderers Day

Travel south from Queenstown and discover the majesty and beauty of north Queensland’s most iconic waterfalls, a MUST see for anyone wanting to experience pristine rainforest, cascading waterfalls, stunning panoramas of Queensland’s highest peaks and maybe a glimpse of rare and unique native wildlife. You will visit and be amazed by the legend of Babinda Boulders steeped in the aboriginal history of trapped spirits and a tragic love story that will chill you to the bone. Next …your morning swim beckons amidst the lush rainforest and cascading crystal clear water of Josephine Falls. A natural waterslide awaits the young at heart, while the spectacular backdrop provides photo opportunities and wildlife spotting. Josephine Falls is a unique opportunity to slide down a waterfall on a natural rockslide sure to make even the crankiest traveller crack a smile. Journey on to Australia’s most iconic waterfall Millaa Millaa Falls made famous by Qantas and herbal essences commercials. This 18 m single-drop waterfall lies in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage-listed rainforest.

For lunch, we will take you to Australia’s largest timer pub and fill your belly with some good old-fashioned country cooking then back into the waterfalls. Mount Hypipamee, the Crater and Dinner Falls, 3 great things in one location here you will have the opportunity to take a bush walk to swim behind a waterfall and gaze into a 85-meter deep volcanic crater and if that’s not enough we quite often see the local Cassowary here too. As the afternoon starts to roll on we head to the Curtain Fig Tree 15meter high roots towering above like 3 story building here you need to keep your eyes peeled for the elusive Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo. Just before our last swim spot, we will take you down to a quiet little creek to search for Platypus and then off to our last stop of the day Lake Eacham. A dormant Volcanic Crater lake filled with turtles and surrounded by wildlife we will watch the sunset over a truly spectacular day at our last swim don’t worry about getting cold the water in here never changes temperature to 23 degrees all day and all night. Waterfall Wanderers will provide morning and afternoon tea, lunch, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuit and fruit throughout the day as well as heaps of games and puzzles to keep you entertained on the bus.
