Fantastic day with our guide today, could not have asked for a better day! Highly recommend this tour it was so much fun and so much better then the Cape Trib day tour we did. Really well organised, they cater the tour and the day to us on the bus and go to the places where the other tour buses werent, so we had each location almost to ourselves which was fantastic!! I also liked that they set lunch up at the waterfall so no time wasted waiting at a cafe for food to arrive. Thank you so much Barefoot Tours... I will be back! From team America x5 of us :-)

We had a fantastic day out with our guide Daz, we were picked up in a bright coloured bus and it had really cool decorations inside and it was clean which is great. We first went up the windy hill and to a giant fig tree which we learnt grows from the top down, then we headed to the volcano crater lake eachkum and it was pretty blue turquoise colour... we went for a swim there, then went to see if we could find some platypus and we did at Malanda falls, we also had lunch there which was sandwhiches you male yourself. And after lunch we went to mila mila, its so nice you have to say it twice. There is the hair flick tv ad and you can walk behind the waterfall and swim underneath it. After lunch we stoped at a lookout and also the tea farm place and then we went to Josiefine falls which has like 3 waterfalls and a rock slide into bottom pool, so fun! And last we went to a boulder place for a swim in a huge creek thing and heard about the devils pools. We got back at 6.30pm.
