Atherton Tablelands Waterfalls - The 10 BEST Cascades to See (2024 Guide)

If you’re planning a trip through northern Queensland the Atherton Tablelands waterfalls should be near the top of your list! In this post, we cover 10 of the best waterfalls along the waterfall circuit and everything you need to know about getting there to explore on your own!

We love visiting waterfalls. And when you travel to Queensland there are so many epic cascades everywhere!

But you’ll find that the waterfall circuit in the Atherton Tablelands offers its own chance to tour the area to explore by car, hike the lush rainforest and even enjoy a refreshing swim in a cool swimming hole at the base of the falls.

When we were up in the Atherton Tablelands we wanted to visit some of the waterfalls that we had heard so much about. There are so many in the area, we were overwhelmed.

The Atherton Tablelands is one of the most well-known areas, and the Atherton Waterfalls are some of the most spectacular waterfalls in northern Queensland.

These stunning cascades flow year-round, making them a must-see attraction when visiting this region.

With some waterfalls being as tall as 125m, these places will blow your mind. Don’t forget to pack your bathers as most of them have swimming holes to enjoy a dip in the cool water.

You can drive the waterfall circuit in a car if you’d like, where you can visit multiple waterfalls including Milllaa Millaa Falls, Ellinjaa Falls, Zillie Falls and Mungalli Falls in one day on a loop drive.

Or you can just head out to explore a couple of others on our list as you desire.

The 10 Best Atherton Tablelands Waterfalls

Here is our list of the top options for Atherton Tableland Waterfalls you can visit on your trip.

Malanda Falls

Malanda Falls is a great place to spend an afternoon with your little one. Located just outside of the town of Malanda.

The sound of the cascading water washes over you as it runs down over basalt rock, which formed long ago when ancient lava flowed down about 15km away.

Have a picnic looking at the falls or go for a dip in one of the pools. It only takes about five minutes of walking on one of many beautiful trails before you reach this hidden gem that will not disappoint!

There is a beautiful mosaic depicting a traditional aboriginal tribe (Ngadjon-Jii tribe) at the carpark for the waterfalls between the info centre & Malanda falls. Do check it out and be mindful to respect the area.

Enjoy one of the walks you can do…
