We took a day tour to the Atherton Tablelands and visited many attractions including Paronella Park, Millaa Millaa Falls and the Babinda Boulders. The tour was booked through the hotel and they were extraordinarily helpful. The tour guide was great and the whole day was so much fun!

A must see and do when in FNQ! The Atherton Tableland is a beautiful area and Paronella Park magical. The Mamu Canopy Walk is great.

Took a day trip to the table lands looking for 'roos and plats and found both. We were particularly fortunate to find a tree kangaroo on this excursion. Later talked to a resident that had been looking for years for a tree 'roo, so felt especially fortunate.

A day touring through the Tablelands having scones and tea at Lake Barrine, then the Curtain Fig tree at Yungaburra, onto Millaa Millaa for a look at the Falls followed by lunch in the Millaa Cafe, then up to the Millaa Lookout to overview the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, then to Malanda and Gallo's Dairy. Where does it stop with so... More

This is the most amazing place that I have every seen, we have a fabulous day with the tour group. Spanish Castle in Paronella Park is spectacular everyone should visit to see what one man can do with his dream. Wonderful day altogether.

This place is amazing - totally worth the side trip and off the beaten path - we had a wonderful tour guide named Jack who grew up in the area and therefore had heaps of knowledge - the grounds are amazing as are the stories that go with this place. This is a MUST do while travelling North Queensland

I went hear a long time ago and though it was amazing . The history of the castle and the people who occupied it must have thought they had found a paridise on earth . It is an easy walk around the gardens and lots of places to sit and rest . Loved the bridge across the lake as well

The tour guide was very nice and knowledgable. The tour itself was enjoyable. Although, it says in the voucher you have the opportunity to swim, no one besides myself and two other girls decided to swim on the tour. I highly recommend bringing a swimsuit to swim under the waterfalls. Even though I enjoyed the tour, I did find a... More

Dr. Tours Travel Specialists arranged this full-day tour for me. 20 people in a mini-bus. What a deal - AU$38! 3 waterfalls, Lake Eacham, tablelands, and a wind down Gillies highway. Only one complaint: I think the guide rushed us through a bit.
