The scenery was magnificent! The scenic railway was absolutely incredible as well as the history of the line being made and the skyrail return was just out of this world

We did the waterfall tour by ourselves as we had a rented car at our disposal. The landscape in the tablelands is amazing, I would certainly recommend to go do the same tour one whole day.

Worth the day trip but after a few waterfalls, I was waterfalls-out. Paid $42 pp to enter Paronella Park which is not worth it at all.

Way overpriced and, not affordable unless you have money to throw away. You can see better ruins in the Cairns parks, some still alive!

don't miss the opportunity to take a tour through the Atherton tablelands with the most beautiful waterfalls, and natural beauty to be in awe of. The Spanish castles are included in this tour and this was incredible to think this man produced hydro electric power for his family and built such a beautiful home garden for his family.
