Not to be missed, only a short drive from Yungaburra and you will see one of the most amazing trees. No normal tree, this has such grandeur and this is one of the better ones.

It’s really giant tree (think avatar got some inspiration from such a tree) really liked the small walk. No other visitors during our walk which made it extra impressive. Walk well done preserving the nature.

Perfect place to take photos. Just a short walk from the car park and special place for picture taking that can be used for Halloween. Glad we stopped!

This tree is massive and so cool to see in person! I didn't even know it existed and am very happy to have been able to visit.

It's what you'd expect. Giant strangler fig. Easily accessed (a few minutes walk along the boardwalk from the carpark) and an interesting sign that explains the process of what the fig tree does. Definitely worth a few minutes stop if you're driving past.

We were on a 'road trip' day as part of our holiday in the wonderful city of Cairns. The fig tree is located off the main road about 5 mins drive. There is a small carpark and plenty of street parking around as it is...More

We saw some signs and thought why not. We are so glad that we stopped here. Mother Nature is so amazing. Parking was a bit tight, but everyone used their manners.

We had some time to spare and decided to stop by and look at this tree. So glad we did. It was amazing to see and just took a few minutes to see. It is an easy walk on a boardwalk.

A quick break on a tablelands tour, this tree is a magnificent display of glorious nature, and our curious 3 year old was greatly amused. Spend the 15 minutes. Totally worth it.

It's a beautiful tree. There is a convenient boardwalk but please pay attention to the numerous species of spiders that sometimes blend. Be mindful of where you step and if you place your hands on the fence rail. My guide compared to the sacred tree...More
