Jaggan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Malanda Falls Conservation Park


Surrounded by dense rainforest, the North Johnstone River tumbles over basalt rock that was formed by an ancient lava flow at Malanda Falls. The much-photographed picturesque falls flow into an artificial swimming pool in this popular park near Malanda.

Have a picnic and take a dip in the pool. Follow the easy one kilometre Tulip Oak walk beside the river and through the rainforest. Learn about the Ngadjon-Jii culture from interpretive signs as you walk along the track. Watch for platypus from the viewing platforms. Keep an eye out for secretive tree-kangaroos, sometimes seen here.

Ellinjaa Falls


Ellinjaa Falls are picturesque falls that are part of the Waterfalls Circuit along with Millaa Millaa and Zilzie Falls. Enjoy the sound of the water rushing over a series of lava columns as you have a picnic lunch. There's a 200 metre walkway to the base of the falls where turtles and platypus are often spotted. The falls are a great spot for swimming. There's also a little ledge hidden behind the falls that you can sit on and take in the scenery.

There's also a lovely grassy picnic area for you to relax. Millaa Millaa Falls are one of the most photographed in all of Australia, so make sure you bring your camera. And if you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a platypus!

Mount Hypipamee National Park


This park features a diatreme (a volcanic pipe or vent) thought to have been created by a massive gas explosion. The gaping hole is 70 metres wide with steep granite sides that plunge 58 metres to the lake below. The lake itself is 82 metres deep! The park protects unique high-altitude rainforest and is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Have a picnic in the rainforest clearing then walk 400 metres to the viewing deck over the diatreme. Return along the 1.2 kilometre Dinner Falls track. Look for golden bowerbirds, spotted catbirds and riflebirds. Set out with spotlights at night to look for green, lemuroid and Herbert River ringtail possums, and long-nosed bandicoots.

Curtain Fig National Park


This park protects a small area of an endangered type of forest, called mabi forest, the local Aborignal (Ngadjon) word for the Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo. The large fig tree found in this park is unique because the extensive aerial roots, that drop 15 metres to the forest floor, have formed a 'curtain'. Starting from a seed dropped high in the canopy, this strangler fig grew vertical roots, which gradually became thicker and interwoven. Over hundreds of years these roots have strangled the host causing it to fall into a neighbouring tree-a stage unique to the development of this fig. Vertical fig roots then formed a curtain-like appearance and the host trees rotted away, leaving the freestanding fig tree. The tree is thought to be nearly 50 metres tall, with a trunk circumference of 39 metres, and is estimated to be over 500 years old.

Explore the elevated boardwalk that encircles the curtain fig, protecting the roots while allowing for uninterrupted views from all angles. Return at night to spotlight for the elusive Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo and other nocturnal animals.

Curtain Fig Tree


The Curtain Fig National Park contains the renowned Curtain Fig Tree, an enormous strangler fig tree. Located a short drive out of Yungaburra, a small town in the Atherton Tableland, the giant tree has several aerial roots hanging down from its branches that look like curtains. It's over 500 years old and definitely worth a look! There's a short boardwalk around the base of the tree that is wheelchair accessible.

Zillie Falls


Zillie Falls are spectacular falls located on the Waterfalls Circuit with Millaa Millaa and Ellinjaa Falls. There is a lovely viewing platform at the base of the falls where you can enjoy a view of the cascading water and rapids. It's a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic lunch or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. A colony of Flying Foxes are often spotted near the car park, so keep your eyes out!

Lake Eacham, Crater Lakes National Park


A clear, blue lake surrounded by cool rainforest, Lake Eacham offers swimming, birdwatching, canoeing, picnic areas and shady walking tracks, making it a popular recreation area with locals and visitors alike. Lake Eacham, Crater Lakes National Park is in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Like Lake Barrine, Lake Eacham is a maar (a crater lake formed by volcanic explosions) surrounded by rainforest.

Take a refreshing dip then lounge on the grassy area near the viewing decks which offer uninterrupted views of the lake. Walk the 3 kilometre lake circuit track and look for musky-rat kangaroos, small marsupials which are active during the day, turtles and fish at the lake's edge and a variety of birds in the rainforest. Explore the fun 1.4 kilometre return Children's walk and learn about local wildlife. Paddle a kayak or canoe on the clear smooth waters of the lake. Ride your bike through the park on Lakes Drive, a winding sealed bitumen access road.

Jaggan: Events

Crane Week


Every year, large flocks of stately grey birds gather on the Atherton Tablelands for the winter. Cranes are the subject of myth and legend around the world, they are immortalised in art and photography and are woven into the fabric of ancient cultures. They leap and dance, they bugle and call and they enrich lives. It's crane season on the Tablelands!

If you live on the Tablelands, it's not hard to spot the cranes, feeding in farmers' paddocks during the day, and flying in v formation every evening across the winter sunset to their favourite roosting sites.

Crane Week is a celebration of these ancient mythical birds. Join them for Tablelands Crane Week: watch, learn and photograph, spread an appreciation of cranes and you will help to ensure a safe future for them in the beautiful region of Australia they call home.
