Rainforest

The Atherton Tablelands features a rich assortment of landscapes; from extinct volcanoes and crater lakes, to dry bushland and green rolling hills, waterfalls and gorges the list goes on...and amongst all of this, you will also find tucked away some special pockets of ancient rainforest...

 

The Wet Tropics

Stretching for 450km from Townsville to Cooktown in Tropical North Queensland, the Wet Tropics covers just 0.2% of Australia, but is one of the most biologically diverse and environmentally important regions of the world. The forests found here are a living museum of ancient plant species and a record of the major stages in the earth’s evolutionary history. It is a region of spectacular scenery and rugged topography with fast-flowing rivers, deep gorges and numerous waterfalls; mountain summits provide expansive vistas of undisturbed rainforests. Fringing the rainforests are tall, open forest, and tall, medium and low woodland. As well as being a place of exceptional natural beauty, the rainforests also contain a number of unique marsupials, including the musky rat kangaroo, which is probably the most primitive surviving kangaroo species, and the Lumholtz’s and Bennett’s tree-kangaroo.

Crater Lakes

Lake Barrine and Lake Eacham are crater lakes, formed from volcanoes. The lakes are approximately 65 metres deep and thought to be around 10,000 years. Lake Eacham has pristine blue water that is perfect for swimming and is surrounded by lush rainforest. Walking tracks through the rainforest provide secluded forest-fringed views of the lake and excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife. There is also a population of turtles that can usually be seen just to the left of the pontoon. Lake Barrine offers Rainforest Cruises and a Teahouse which has been operating since early 1927. Once you have enjoyed a traditional Devonshire Tea, take a relaxed 45 minute guided cruise around the lake and tour one of the most complex and beautiful rainforest eco-systems. Lake Barrine also features a rainforest walking track which is 6km. Swimming here is unsuitable due to the cruise boats.

Waterfalls

The Atherton Tablelands is home to 17 of the nation's most spectacular waterfalls, starting with the Barron Falls in Kuranda. The Barron Falls is located within the Barron Gorge National Park and is 260 metres in total height. The Falls are at their most spectacular during the green (wet) season, December through to March. Davies Creek Falls is situated just beyond Kuranda, and features a magnificent waterfall cascading over huge granite boulders. Further on is Emerald Creek Falls, located 3km from Mareeba. The falls plunge into placid pools, where you can take a swim and cool off in the refreshing waters. The picturesque Malanda Falls is located within the  Malanda Falls Conservation Park and provides a popular swimming spot, as well as a site of important historical significance. The southern waterfalls circuit includes Millaa Millaa, Zillie and Ellinjaa Falls and further to the south Mungalli Falls. Millaa Millaa Falls is regarded as one of the most photographed waterfalls in all of Australia. The falls are framed by spectacular lush rainforest and tropical plants, which cascade perfectly into a pristine waterhole below. Mungalli Falls is the highest waterfall on the Tablelands, approximately 90m high, and features swimming holes above and below the falls.

Paronella Park

Voted the #1 must see, Paronella Park was a dream that came true for José Paronella. His dream was to build a castle, and he chose a special part of Australia to create Paronella Park. On 5 Hectares of land beside Mena Creek Falls, José Paronella built his Spanish castle, a picnic area by the falls, tennis court, bridges, a tunnel, and wrapped it up in an amazing range of 7,500 tropical plants and trees (now a lush rainforest!). It opened to the public in 1935. The park has a rich history of trials and tribulations between flooding, cyclones and fire; but still the dream lives on. Paronella Park has received multiple Queensland tourism awards, is State and National Heritage listed, and is a National Trust listed property. This privately owned and operated attraction is the site of Queensland's 1st privately owned hydro electric plant (1933).
