Millaa Millaa

Millaa Millaa is an Aboriginal word meaning plenty of water or waterfall and this is as true as ever as some of the most beautiful waterfalls are within a few minutes drive of the town. The main one of course is Millaa Millaa but further along Tourist Drive number nine stop in and photograph Zillie Falls and Ellinjaa Falls to name a few.

In the main street is a lovely park with a larger than life statue of Christie Palmerston and one of his Aboriginal guides. The Palmerston Highway is named after this famous explorer.

Coffee shops and the local hotel provide convivial hospitality for visitors and the historical museum is open most mornings from 10.00am to midday.

The main industries of the Millaa Millaa area are dairying and tourism and most of the rainforest is now World Heritage-listed so enjoy your stay.

Millaa Millaa Falls

Pepina Falls


Pepina Falls are best viewed in the time just after the "Green Season". The "Green Season" sometimes known as the wet season runs from January to the end of April most years.

Located in a little seen area off the Old Palmerston Highway (the scenic route between Millaa Millaa and Ravenshoe) on Maalan Road they certainly provide a photographic opportunity.

Mt Hypipamee


The Hypipamee crater is referred to as a volcanic pipe. The pipe was opened upward through surface rocks by gas produced from molten rock below and as a result of tremendous pressure, the vent exploded sending volcanic bombs far across the landscape. It has a diameter of 61 metres at the water level which is 58 metres below the platform. Even 85 metres below the water surface, the pipe hasn't lost any of its dimensions.

Nganyaji Interpretive Centre


Opened in 2002 the Nganyaji Interpretive Centre is about the lives of the local indigenous people, the Jirrbal.

The Jirrbal constructed bush material shelters in the rain forest and as there was permanent food and water did not go "walkabout" as did the inland aboriginals.

Elder Maisie Barlow was very involved with the creation of the Centre and she has quotes from her book exhibited in her honour.

Entry is free.

Tully Falls and Tully Gorge


Follow the scenic Tully Falls Road to the spectacular Tully Gorge Lookout. The falls only run in a big wet season, but the walls of raw rock and rainforest which plunge 300 metres (984 feet) down to the Tully River are still an awe-inspiring sight. An 800 metre track takes walkers to the Tully River above the falls. It is a spectacular 295 metre Gorge for much of the year, during the Wet Season the Falls appear after much rain.
