Cairns alternative day tours, QueenslandTypical, rushed, overpriced tour, blah blah blah blah blah….. Nah…. BUGGER THAT!


We know you don’t want to spend the day rushing from one place to another, with no time to really appreciate the beauty of nature around you- this is why our tours are all about relaxing and having a you beaut day out with no time restrictions! Let us whisk you away on a tour through some of the most beautiful locations around the Atherton Tablelands.


Swim in volcanic crater lakes, take a dip under breath-taking waterfalls and slide down a natural waterslide! If you don't want to swim, you can still check out the amazing Cathedral Fig Tree, and find some truly awesome photo opportunities! Enjoy a tropical morning and afternoon tea, and have lunch mixing with the locals (not included in tour cost!).

Sightseeing tour cairns for backpackersLookouts

A quick stop here, perfect photo opportunity and a chance to stretch your legs!


Crawford's Lookout

A quick stop here, and another excellent photo opportunity. A clearing in the trees gives you a fantastic view of the valley and mountain range.



No Aussie tour would be complete without mixing the locals in a local cafe.  You can of course bring your own lunch if you prefer.


Dinner Falls & The Crater

Cairns backpacker's tour

Enjoy a refreshing swim under the mesmerising cascading Dinner Falls and check out The Crater- a 138m vertical crater formed by an explosive eruption of volcanic gases, which has since become an eerie looking lake.


Lake Eacham

An extinct volcanic crater lake formed approx 12,000 years ago and surrounded by pristine tropical rainforest. While you’re having a leisurely dip in the crystal clear water, we will prepare a delicous morning tea for you!


Catherdral Fig Tree

An optional stop depending on time. Check out this massive, 500 year old strangler fig tree- it really is an awesome sight!

What to Bring:

  • Togs, swimmers, bathers, bikini, boardies, (whatever you like to call them!!). If you’d rather go naked, that’s fine if that’s what floats your boat!!
  • Towel
  • A dry change of clothes (maybe something warm in winter)
  • Sunscreen- watch out for that good ol’ Aussie sun, otherwise you’ll be a lobster before you know it! A hat’s not a bad idea either.
  • Footwear- whatever you’re comfortable with (no high heels please ladies!). Easy tracks, so thongs are fine
  • Lunch, if you wish to bring your own, or there’s always a cafe stop for some good Aussie pub grub!
  • Don’t forget to chuck a smile in your pocket too.
