Cancellation policy

These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

Hop on 'Gus the Wonder Bus' and spend a day exploring the waterfalls and the rainforest. Then, swim in the crystal-clear waterfalls and crater lakes like Josephine Falls, Milla Milla waterfall, and Lake Eacham.

Start off by heading to the Babinda Boulders Rainforest, considered to be the oldest living history museum. While you're here, enjoy leisurely strolls or go swimming in the mountain water. This is nature at its finest. Next up is Josephine Falls, a three-stage waterfall with an amazing swimming hole. Needless to say, you will want to dive into the water here as well. After all this activity, take a break and head to the Tea House. We can't tell you much of what you'll get here but you will not be disappointed!

After you've fuelled up, head over to Milla Milla Falls and dive into the 30-meter (100 foot) waterfall. Don't hesitate on doing the famous hair flick! At Lake Eacham, see the volcanic crater that is over 60 meters deep. Finally, in the end, you can say 'hello' to one of the cutest creatures, the platypus (only in season, from 1 April to 31 October).
