Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Lake Barrine, Yungaburra, Queensland Australia

Enjoy a relaxing quiet stop in the cool of the morning at beautiful Lake Barrine filled with pristine rain water and surrounded by World Heritage listed rainforest teeming with abundant wildlife. (This is a large Maar Volcano crater – a low subcircular volcanic crater lake derived from the latin “mare” for sea.)

This is the first stop of the day and includes a delicious morning tea (Option A only). Lake Barrine are famous for their award winning ‘Devonshire Morning Tea’ of freshly baked scones and jam/cream and locally brewed tea or coffee.

Participate in the first wildlife cruise of the day and view the undisturbed wildlife in its natural habitat. This cruise is highly recommended as it’s the best place to view the abundant wildlife. On most days the banks of the lake will reveal a variety of birds including pelicans and ducks and other animals such as tortoises, eels, water monitors and various species of snakes including pythons, carpet snakes & red bellied black snakes sunning themselves on the shoreline. (The Cruise is only included in our Option A tour)


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Atherton Tablelands, Cairns, Queensland Australia

Departure from Cairns, we head south travelling past Walsh’s Pyramid, one of the largest naturally formed pyramids in the world. Here your guide will stop so you can grab a photo of this unique North Queensland landmark.

    The day was packed but it was well planned and we got to see a lot. Our guide Darryl was interesting, funny and full of local knowledge and made the day great. We had plenty of time to see everything and we never felt rushed. the falls were beautiful, the Lake was stunning and morning tea delicious, the fig tree was majestic (and an extra special narration from Darryl), lunch was outstanding and Paronella Park was an unexpected treat. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Steve was an excellent driver, we felt very safe. He was an informative guide of great depth and breath and it was very informative. The small group (of 4) was beneficial for what we wanted to do and the time spent. He provided options for us to choose from, and was flexible to changes. The itinerary was great, however unfortunately we did not end up doing the boat trip on Lake Barrine which was disappointing. We would have liked to do that and the Mamu skywalk. Overall a great trip and Steve was very knowledgeable and accommodating! Would thoroughly recommend this tour! Louise & Sarah

    A fantastic day trip made even more special with tour driver Steve providing detailed information on all the locations we visited. He went out if his way so we could see Platypus swimming in their natural habitat. The whole day flowed wonderfully with many highlights along the way. Throughly recommend this company and definitely value for money as an additional bonus.

    I really loved this tour!! It covered all the places I had wanted to see, and it was perfect. Simon, our guide, was 10/10. From the moment we stepped on the coach, it was warm, friendly, inclusive, and full of history. Nothing was lacking. I felt like I was on a coach full of friends. The morning tea was amazing, and the lunch menu was the best. Pizza done the Italian way. The places we saw, and the history we learned, cannot be seen by driving around in a car. I have been travelling solo for many years, and this was my favourite tour so far. The destinations? Absolutely fabulous.. The journey? Equally fabulous. I didn’t want the day to end. Highly recommended. Thank you Simon

    This was a small and intimate but beautiful and eye opening tour. Simon is an exceptional guide, knowledgeable, witty, courteous and attentive. He took us to gorgeous parts of rainforest, as well as stopping at lovely lake Barrine and Milla Milla Falls. Do try scones at Lake Barrine Teahouse, they are lovely! Beautiful and serene spot, with well tended garden. We didn't feel like swimming in Milla Milla Falls, weather was rainy and apparently water is 12 degrees, but still a great photo opportunity. At Paronella Park a guide showed us around, telling amusing stories about the Park. In the rain it looked the part, atmospheric and haunted. We covered 360 km in a day but it was enjoyable and we were kept interested and involved all the time.

    Paronella Park was so interesting and we worth the trip, Milllaa Millaa falls was beautiful and so refreshing, very few tourists so you get to enjoy the quiet and tranquility of the area, the morning tea at Lake Barone is delicious and I loved Fred the little dog that patrols the restaurant. Steve our driver was so friendly and knowledgeable, highly recommend this tour.

    nice day beautiful scenery and water falls great morning tea at Lake Barrine shame boat tour not going anymore. Lunch was very nice huge servings at local hotel near Paronella Park. Paronella Park was fantastic but more than an hour needed to see it properly especially for older travelers who don't move so fast anymore. Only 4 on our tour which made it very nice driver was very good with lots of local knowledge.
