Waterfall Circuit


Whilst I am in Cairns I would love to see some of the Atherton Tablelands Waterfalls Circuit the main 3 I'd like see are Millaa Millaa Falls, Zillie Falls, Ellinjaa Falls.

I know they are all near in distance from each other by car however I cant drive :(

So I'm wondering if any one recommends a cheapish tour that go to all three?

(The only tours I can find are ones that include a big lunch and other park entries which make the tour rocket it up in price)

If no one knows of a tour, I don't mind getting a bus/ coach that goes to Millaa Millaa Falls from Cairns as this is the main fall I'd like to spent time at.

Would be grateful on any information on this?

Thanks :)

To my knowledge there are no tour busses that visit all three, nor are there any public busses that will take you there...

There are a few budget priced tours that visit Millaa Millaa falls - Cape Trib Connections ($60), Foaming Fury ($85) and Barefoot ($85). These are full day tours that visit many of the nicest places in the southern tablelands area but DO NOT include lunch.

Uncle Brian's offer a very similar tour including lunch for $120.

Tour prices normally go up on the 1st of April each year, so the prices I have mentioned may not be correct but will be close.

All tour companies MUST pay "park fees" to acquire the permits to allow them to take paying guests in to these areas - this is unavoidable.

None of the above mentioned tours visit Parranella Park. I have a feeling these are the "park fees" you refer to..... Please be aware Parranella is a privately owned business (not national parks) that has an entry price of about $38 p/p.
