On the Wallaby - Adventurer - 2 Day / 1 Night

This popular nature tour takes us to the highlights of the cool tropical Atherton Tablelands. Departs Cairns daily at 8:00am.

Day One: Rainforest Waterfalls: The day begins with a visit to the Curtain Fig Tree and continues with guided rainforest walks in search of native wildlife at both the Cathedral Fig Tree and the volcanic crater, Lake Barrine, before lunch. We travel to several rainforest waterfalls such as the famous Millaa Millaa Falls, and off the beaten track to Zillie Falls before pausing for refreshing tropical fruits and a swim at the beautiful Ellinjaa Falls.

Overnight accommodation is at the award winning On the Wallaby Backpacker Lodge, with platypus spotting before a seriously good BBQ dinner.

Day Two: Mountain Bikes, Wildlife Canoeing: Guests are treated to a guided mountain bike ride through the lush, green Atherton Tablelands countryside and rainforest for a swim and walk at the volcanic crater, Lake Eacham (Lunch can be purchased here at own expense).

In the afternoon we explore a secluded area of Lake Tinaroo in the safety of our two person canoes. Our guide will help you spot rare wildlife such as tree kangaroos, birds and water dragons. Then, have your face painted with Aboriginal ochre clay before hot showers, tea and coffee at On the Wallaby Backpackers Lodge.
