Ellinjaa Falls in Pictures

Ellinjaa Falls is on the compact 17 km Waterfall Circuit that includes Millaa Millaa Waterfall and Zillie Falls located on the Atherton Tablelands south east of Cairns, Australia. It makes up part of the larger 197 km Misty Mountains Loop that encompasses the entire Wooroonooran National Park and takes in over a dozen stunning swimming holes, waterfalls, lookouts and hikes.

A 20 minute downhill path from the car park leads you to the lagoon at the base of Ellinjaa Falls. If you need cooling off, what better place to do it?
