Plunging over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, Big Millstream Falls is reputedly the widest single-drop waterfall in Australia.
A walking track leads to a viewing area over the falls. Here, in the rainshadow of the eastern dividing ranges, the dry, open woodland vegetation is dominated by eucalypts.
A separate entrance to the park takes you to Little Millstream Falls.
View these beautiful falls from just near the carpark or take the steep and narrow track to their base.
Millstream Falls National Park lies within the traditional country of the Jirrbal Aboriginal people. The Jirrbal lived in the rainforest in semi-permanent villages, and used the rainforest’s rich resources for food medicine and materials.
Location: From Ravenshoe, travel along Tully Falls Road for 3 km and then turn right into Wooroora Road. Follow this for 1.5 km to the turn-off to the car park.
There are three walking tracks at Millstream Falls National Park, two from the Big Millstream Falls carpark and one at Little Millstream Falls.
Allow 25 minutes walking time to walk the 700 m return, moderate to difficult grade track. Follow the steep and narrow walking track to the base of Little Millstream Falls. Enjoy views of the falls from numerous points along the track, and look for platypus in the pool at its base.
