Mungalli Creek Dairy Café has some of the best views on the Atherton Tablelands and some of the best tucker! This roadside gem features country hospitality served from the original farmhouse and overlooking the Johnstone River Gorge.
Try the biodynamically farmed dairy products and local organic produce the cafe serves. Devonshire teas, cheese platters, pies and ice cream are among the offerings made with Mungalli magic. There’s lots of trees in the spacious grounds and tables if you want to dine al fresco or picnic. And the café is BYO so treat yourself to a glass of wine as well. There’s a window onto the production centre of the farm so have a look how things happen or you can lean over a fence and talk to some of the happy cows.

Millaa Millaa is the gateway to the Misty Mountain Trails, a network of hikes / mountain biking trails through unique high-altitude forest. Not for the inexperienced but the clear creeks and panoramic views are the real reward. Designated camping areas also make it possible to extend your stay in the wilderness, many of them with picnic, camper trailer/motorhome/caravan sites, toilets and other facilities.

Views for Days
For the best view in town – or country in this case – take a trip to the Millaa Millaa Lookout on East Evelyn Road. Before you, are the rolling green hills that produce some of the best dairy produce in Australia, extinct volcano cones. The photography opportunities are wonderful, with sunset a favourite time.

Quaint & Quirky
The Falls Teahouse Café is an absolute favourite on the waterfall circuit. The 1930s built farmhouse has a beautiful garden and lawn with a view out the back and a terrace to relax on and take it all in. There’s wood fired pizza, pasta and pies on the menu plus salads and of course coffee.

Teeing from Top
Not what you would expect, Millaa Millaa’s nine-hole golf course is a popular one among the locals. With holes have plenty of elevation and can be a little tricky. It has a short but interesting layout on naturally undulating topography. There is plenty of wildlife and you may just spot a Lumholtz’s tree kangaroo hanging in the treetops. It is surrounded by rainforest and guarded in the distance by Queensland’s two highest mountains – Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker.
