“Great photo opportunity to visit as part of a day trip to the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

I visited this attraction while I was driving through the area.

It's a short distance from the main highway, so it's easy to get there.

You park quite close to the location of the tree, and you access it by walking a short distance through rainforest.

The tree is remarkably large- well worth stopping and looking. This makes it a good tourist photo opportunity!

This area has much natural beauty, which is accessible by car on a day trip from Cairns. This attraction is one of several worth a visit.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Absolutely incredible tree! We almost missed this one, as we has been to the Cathedral Fig the day before, and thought they were the same thing! These strangler trees are phenomenal, and visiting them is definitely worthwhile.

It's a shame that there is a sign skewing part of the view, but that's my only complaint :)

“little gem”

Small park but big impact - we saw a pied monarch building a nest right over the walkway, and 2 beautiful tree kangaroos. Lots of other birds and then there was the fig tree!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

I had no idea that this tree was massive but you will see in the photograph the scale of it as there is a lady standing at the railing.

The bright sunshine added to our experience.

Well worth a visit.

“Masive Tree”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

There are many fig tree's throughout the tropics,
but this one has to be one the biggest we have seen.
We stopped here for the circular boarded walk as part of our tour.
Photo's do not do the vastness of this tree justice.
You will have to stop and see it for yourself.
