Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Millstream Falls National Park

What's special?

Millstream Falls is reputedly Australia’s widest single-drop waterfall. The falls flow over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, a legacy of the Atherton Tableland’s volcanic past. Millstream Falls National Park also protects a dry open woodland remnant on the tableland and is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Here, in the rain shadow of the eastern dividing ranges, the woodland is dominated by bloodwoods and stringybarks. Tall open forest of majestic rose gums is protected in nearby Millstream Conservation Park.

Exploring Millstream

Spend some time in the open woodland. Toilets, a shelter shed, picnic tables, wood barbecues and tank water are provided.

Camping is not allowed in the park.

Walking

See the falls and rockpools along the Millstream River.

Getting there
