Curtis Falls

This enchanting walk begins in wet eucalypt forest beneath towering flooded gums. Notice a drop in temperature as the wet eucalypt forest merges into lush rainforest. Beautiful crows nest and staghorn ferns can be seen in the canopy above. The rock pool and surrounding basalt rock face provide important glow-worm and platypus habitat.

Mt Tibberoowuccum

A steep walk to the summit of the mountain, a bit of an uneven but level scramble along the ridge for about 50m with a small 6-8m steep scramble to get to the peak at the end of it. Summit has spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and north to the Sunshine Coast. There are two alternative tracks which meet at the the top of the ridge at a point where an arrow painted on a rock directs you along the ridge to the summit. Take care as both tracks can be slippery after rain due to wet clay/ tree roots and loose shale at the top of the tracks can be a concern in any weather as well.

Sandy Creek Circuit

This walk features lush rainforest with towering trees emerging through the canopy and at the falls, eucalypt forest. It follows Sandy Creek out to the western lookout of Cameron Falls, where on a clear day you can enjoy views across the valley to Mount Flinders and the southern suburbs of Brisbane.

This Track travels close to steep cliff edges, so stay on the designated track and behind the fences.

The falls are aligned such that under the correct conditions a rainbow will appear. It has been seen in the afternoon in late July.

Mt Sorrow Ridge walk

I found this track a beautiful but hard walk just out of Cape Tribulation town. This track is now well worn and thanks to fellow bushwalkers has been clearly marked with pink flagging tape. The 1st kilometre is fairly steep with log hops and tree roots to watch for, but the 2nd undulates slightly and can be power walked. From there to the top the trail is very steep and you will be pulling yourself up tree roots and tiny rock handholds; there is even a section where a rope has been provided to aid your climb. At the top there is a viewing platform with great views of Cape Tribulation Beach to the east.

There are no creeks on the walk, so take plenty of water (min 3lt). Stinging Trees, Leeches (in the wet season) and spiky palm leaves and creepers abound! This is also Cassowary country. The forest is thick, so no views till you reach the summit. Leave yourself plenty of time for the return walk as the 'canopy cover' dusk will be about 1hr earlier than in the open.

Don't be tempted with a cooling swim on Cape Tribulation Beach on your return, as you might just get snapped up!

Millaa Millaa Falls

Millaa Millaa Falls is the most beautiful and iconic waterfall of the waterfall-laden Atherton Tablelands region. What the falls has going for it, is a lush rainforest setting fringed with broad ferns, colourful flowers and a plunge pool suitable for swimming. Even though the size of the falls is modest, at 18.3m, it possessed a photo-friendly classical rectangular shape, which complements the idyllic scenery well.
