Uncle Brian's has been sharing rainforest and waterfall experiences with amazing people for almost 25 years and has been locally owned since 1995. The unbeatable combination of music, food and breathtaking natural history guarantees a truly fantastic day tour. Your friendly, funny, expert driver and Gus the Bus will be as excited as you - they love showing off their backyard and exploring it as much as we first-timers!
Your first stop is Babinda Boulders, a fast-flowing pristine creek where you will explore the exuberant rainforest and the oldest living history museum. The rock pools are a welcome sight in the tropical heat, surrounded by lush forest to create a cool oasis. The waters offer refreshing refuge, where visitors can swim in the large pools that are surrounded by natural boulders!
This amazing three-stage rainforest waterfall offers one of the most spectacular swimming holes in Australia! Visitors can enjoy a short bushwalk to the falls where they can try their camera skills and grab some photos, take a refreshing dip, and enjoy the best part of this unique location - the naturally formed waterslide!
Millaa Millaa Falls
Millaa Millaa Falls is one of the most iconic waterfalls in Australia - and with good reason! This famous location is unparalleled in its beauty, with a picture-perfect waterfall fringed by palm trees, giant ferns, colourful flowers and towering trees. Due to its beauty, Millaa Millaa is one of the most photographed locations in Australia. Enjoy the cool waters or relax on the grassy shores, whilst keeping an eye out for freshwater turtles that like to hang out in the freshwater depths!
Enjoy a short walk and relaxing swim at Lake Eacham, found in Crater Lakes National Park. This volcanic crater lake is over 60 meters deep and was formed as the result of volcanic eruptions almost 10,000 years ago! The cool water offers a refreshing place for a dip and shaded areas that are great for relaxing - leave feeling completely immersed in Mother Nature!
The last stop of the day is a very special one. Here, you will be looking for a unique creature called a Platypus - one of Australia's icons! As one of the most unique animals in the world, they are often hard to spot in the wild. Uncle Brian's will take you to a destination where you're most likely to see these fun aquatic animals as they play in the water.
