Day 1

This value-packed overnight tour begins when your On The Wallaby guide takes you up the spectacular Gillies Range and onto the tropical Atherton Tablelands. Explore the Cathedral Fig Tree and take a rainforest walk at Lake Barrine National park before lunch and a swim at Lake Eacham.
Travel through the picturesque countryside for the day`s highlights swimming at several pristine waterfalls, such as the famous Millaa Millaa, plus a jungle trek to view the raging Dinner Falls and the Crater in Mt Hypipamee National Park.
Overnight accommodation is at our award winning ON THE WALLABY BACKPACKERS LODGE, with platypus spotting before a seriously good BBQ dinner.


Day 2

Guests are treated to a guided mountain bike ride through the lush, green Atherton Tablelands countryside or - weather permitting - an adventurous down hill ride on the trails of Mt Baldy in the Herberton Range National Park. Grab some lunch (at own expense) and head to our local swimming hole for a refreshing swim. In the afternoon you explore a secluded area of Lake Tinaroo in the safety of our two person canoes. Your 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 LODGE. Return to Cairns approximately 7pm.

      On the Wallaby Lodge is in Yungaburra Village, just over an hour from Cairns, on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands. It’s also the base form where On The Wallaby conduct their outdoor activities. It has a kick back and chill out, relaxed atmosphere.
      If you`re seeking a refreshing experience with like-minded, independent travellers in a genuine home-away-from-home environment, you`ve found it.
      There`s so much to see and do around here! At the lodge you can arrange to glide the rivers in a canoe at night on a nocturnal wildlife spotting tour with our expert guides.
      Swim at the waterfalls and walk through the rainforest. Take a slow evening stroll around the heritage village of Yungaburra, and stop at the specially constructed viewing platform for some platypus spotting!
