We had a unique experience when we thre a fan belt and had to wait on the side of the road for a replacement bus and then after doing the paronella park we had to change buses again but our driver was great. He kept us informed the whole time and we did not miss out on any part of our tour.

Platypus spotting

There were many highlights as the tour opened up the Atherton Tableland to help first time visitors to appreciate the natural beauty of this area. The highlights included the sighting of platypus in the wild and the spectacular Milla Milla Falls. Our guide/driver, Jim, was both knowledgeable and entertaining helping us gain the most from our day.

Paronella Park with Northern Experience Eco Tours

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.

Our guide Shane was very knowledgeable and arranged a fabulous day out for us. The scenery was breathtaking and something special. Paronella park was well worth the visit to learn of the history during its planning. Milla milla falls we’re spectacular. Thank you Shane for sharing your personal travelling and family moments.

Milla Milla falls and Paronella park where highlights. Very good morning tea and lunch. Felt rushed at times especially at Paronella park. Our German guide was ok but not very concerned about people on the rainforest walks. Just raced ahead!

Paronella Park experience
BRONWYN_G
, Jun 2021
This day trip was amazing. First up a drive up to the Atherton tablelands a bit damp but great views, a swim at Millaa Millaa Falls, and morning tea at Lake Barrine ,( great Devonshire Tea at the Lakehouse). Paronella Park was amazing, great gardens, interesting talk by the guide, lovely and relaxing to walk around. Great value for my money.

BRILLIANT TOUR EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS
RICHARD_B
, May 2021
We highly recommend this brilliant tour to everyone wanting to see and explore the beauty of the Atherton tablelands. From the included coffe or tea with scones with jam and cream at the charming Lake Barrine tearooms to Millaa Millaa falls and the Curtain Fig tree. Huge towering Kauri trees and the amazing splendour of Paronella Pak are included among many other attractions. The included lunch was promptly served and deicious. The small group tour bus was comfortable and our hospitable, friendly tour guide (Brett) was an amazing mine of interesting stories and information with an encyclopedic knowledge of the area. We returned to cairns refreshed with the days proceedings. Well done an excellent tour.

Steve was professional, patient and provided a memorable experience. Learnt alot about the tablelands, sugar canes, rainforest. Lake Barrine is beautiful and very peaceful. Milla Milla Falls although it was dry season it was still good. Lunch at Roscoes pizza was the best Italian restaurant pizza and pasta was so delicious, now when we eat Italian it pales in comparison to Roscoes. My whole family was so grateful for such a delicious lunch. The serves were also quite generous. It was quite hot at Paronella park and it's history is beautiful and so was the park. Thank you Steve. Highly recommended!

My wife and I had a great day. There were a number of highlights of the day but I won't share as I don't want to spoil the surprises that you get throughout the day. Our driver/guide Steve was a fantastic source of information and made sure we were looked after.
