Looking for things to do in Cairns on a budget? Maybe you’re out to see some stunning waterfalls around Cairns or on the Atherton Tablelands? Millaa Milla Falls are one of the most a popular swimming holes in the region.
Located five minutes drive North of the lovely Atherton Tablelands township of Millaa Millaa, beholds Millaa Millaa Falls. Altough just one of the waterfalls of many from the stunning circuit that surrounds the township, Millaa Millaa Falls are truly of exceptional beauty.
As the most photographed waterfall in all of Australia, Millaa Millaa Falls are not only a popular location for tourists and photographers, it is also an ideal fresh water swimming hole to relax, unwind and enjoy the serenity. As a single drop waterfall spanning at 18.3 metres high, the falls are a glorious depiction of the beauty of Far North Queensland, providing magnificent photo and video opportunities.
Swim out to the waterfall and relax under the pristine water flow for a truly soothing experience. Better yet, bring a few floating chairs from the pool (or your local shop that supplies them) and lounge around the waterhole in style!
With regards to children, Millaa Millaa Falls are a great location if you are looking for things to do in Cairns with kids. The waterhole is safe to swim in and barbecue, change rooms and toilets are located on the site, so it’s a great place to set up for the day and cook a beautiful lunch.
We also recommend The Falls Treehouse. Located on the corner of Theresa Creek Rd, Falls Treehouse is a country style restaurant that overlooks the stunning backdrops of the region, serving morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
