Curtain Fig NP

Far North Queensland

A well built boardwalk surrounds the most astounding sight - a massive curtain of aerial roots created over 3 toppled trees by a single strangler fig. The fig is thought to be over 500 years old.

Getting there

The Curtain Fig is on the Atherton Tableland, on the outskirts of Yungaburra, which is about 66 km or just over 1 hr's drive from Cairns via the Gillies Highway. The Atherton Tableland is also accessible via the Kennedy Highway from Cairns, the Palmerston Highway from Innisfail or the Mossman–Mt Molloy Road from Port Douglas.

Not really a bushwalk as it is all on boardwalks. Magnificent walk around a stunning Fig Tree.
