Temperatures on the Tablelands range between 5 - and 14 degrees C from July to August, and from 17 - 25 degrees C from September to June. Major attractions are the two World Heritage listed crater lakes - Lake Barrine and Lake Eacham. Other attractions include the Malanda Falls, formed from an ancient basalt lava flow, that plunges into the historic swimming pool. There is a recreation area there where you enjoy a picnic, BBQ, a swim and bushwalking in the rainforest. The highest falls on the Tablelands is at the Mungalli Falls, located 13 km from Millaa Millaa along the Palmerston Highway. Visit Mt Hypipamee National Park and see the fascinating Crater that was formed as a result of gases blasting out a vent hole through the solid granite. The Crater is about 120 m deep with a 70 m pool of still water at the bottom. The Millaa Millaa Falls complex is also worth a visit.
