If you're in the Yungaburra area of the Atherton Tablelands, you should stop in to see the Curtain Tree Fig just outside of town and not far off the Gillies Highway. An excellent boardwalk takes you around for a 360 degree view of this amazing natural wonder. There are informative displays explaining how it all came about. The surrounding rainforest & wildlife is also fascinating. Plenty of parking and an easy walk in straight from the car park. Wheelchair friendly.

If you're in the area, this is an easy excursion to a short walk that will take you to a circular walkway around the tree where you can admire the majesty and size of this amazing tree.

This is an amazing example of a "strangler fig". We were there with 3 boys under 6 who found it a little boring but for adults it's both interesting and beautiful to see.

We planned to visit this site while touring the Tablelands Falls and were not quite sure what to expect. It was quite a long drive the tree and it is not very well signed. There is a sign off the main road, but you can easily miss it.

So well worth the time to visit here. Plenty of car parking. You stroll along a boardwalk through some lovely tropical forest for a few minutes and then pow the tree is upon you. Well I could not believe how unusual this stunning tree looks. It is huge and really spectacular. Botany at the extreme end of the spectrum. Definitely worth a visit.

I come back to the Tablelands every couple of years and never not come back here to show my travel companions what an incredible piece of nature this is... Pop across to Gallo Chocolate and Cheese factory as well which is 5 mins away
