A perfect veil of water drops into a swimming lagoon fringed with ancient rainforest and tree ferns. Electric blue butterflies tumble through sun beams. It looks too good to be real. That’s why Millaa Millaa Waterfall is the most photographed waterfall in Queensland. Millaa Millaa is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘Plenty of Water’. The falls are over 18 metres high and the pool at the bottom is good for swimming once you step over the rocks. More about the waterfall later. Take a moment to enjoy the photos first.

Millaa Millaa Falls are part of a compact waterfall circuit that includes Zillie Falls and Ellinjaa Falls. This circuit is part of a larger 197 km Misty Mountains Loop that encompasses Wooroonooran National Park and includes dozens of beautiful swimming holes, waterfalls, forest walks, summit hikes, and sweeping vistas.
Campervan Rental: One of the most flexible and fun ways to explore Australia is in a campervan, and you can do this for as little as $49 a day with Camperman Australia. There are plenty of beautiful free and low-cost camping in the region including Babinda, Wooroonooran National Park and the Atherton Tablelands.
Where to Stay: At the other end of the accommodation scale, couples on a romantic getaway should consider staying at Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat. You can book the whole place making it so private that if you see another soul you get your money back.
