A scenic waterfall circuit

In the south of the Atherton Tablelands, Millaa Millaa is a small township adjacent to a famous waterfall circuit: the Millaa Millaa, Zillie and Elinjaa Falls.

The cicuit is just to the west of the Wooroonooran National Park and on the circular 17 kilometer sealed route on Theresa Creek Rd, off the Palmerston Highway

Millaa Millaa Falls

A famous waterfall and now heritage listed, the Millaa Millaa Falls are only 18.3 meters high, however, the water curtain and scenic backdrop make the falls sort after for photographers.

The falls pass over “organ pipes” formations produced by slowly cooling volcanic basalt.

There is a pool suitable for swimming and a small park at the base of the falls including picnic facilities and public toilets.   

Zillie Falls

Next up on Theresa Creek Road is Zillie Falls, at a height of around 30 meters

There is a viewing platform at the head of the falls and access to the small bottom pool.

No facilities apart from the viewing platform are at this fall.

Elinjaa Falls

And then last along the circuit is Elinja Falls at somewhere around 15 meters high.

To get to the falls from the car park requires a walk through a section of the rainforest from the car.

 There is a small wading pool at the bottom of the falls.
