Stop by to find out great story behind how the 500 yr old curtain fig came about. Let's just say it's a great accident! We went by ourselves but luckily ran into a tour group so got the lowdown. Also nearby are couple of other great places: Nick's for pizza and a creek for platypus viewing The town itself is... More

Worthy of a stop and look. Puts man in perspective as how big Mother Nature is and how clever. Lots of photo opportunities.

The strangler fig is such an icon in this area that individual trees have National Parks named after them and we detoured to visit this one. It was a tremendous cathedral like structure and its girth covered the area of half a tennis court. After the seed germinates in the canopy of its host tree, the sapling winds its way... More

We stopped in to show our little boys the curtain fig. They loved running along the boardwalk to find it. And were interested to hear about how the fig grows. The infomation sign had good pictures they could understand. We only spent 15mins here but had a great little time.

What a wonder - go and see the Giant Curtain fig tree they said, really I said, what for? Well it is amazing, I still cant believe a tree can grow like this. Apparently it gave Cameron Mackintosh the idea for the Tree of Souls in Avatar, truly amazing. I take back all my jibes to those who suggested we... More

A terrific experience. The area is clean and well looked after. People are able to walk around and explore the surrounds.

The Curtain Fig was decribed by my nephew as a Tree "Murdering" another Tree. He is probably right, but it will be a slow death. The Curtain fig is only a short distance from the road and parking area. Take a couple of minutes - try to avoid running over the couple of chickens running around the car park and... More

Having grown up in NQ, I first visited the Curtain fig as a child when you could virtually climb on it. Recently visited to show a southern visitor. It is a spectacular example of nature's way and is very accessible now with the boardwalks. Saw a couple of families while we were there with smaller children who were obviously sick... More

Haven't visited here for over twenty years! It was easier to get up close to the tree then, but understand why they've had to install the decking walk. It's an easy and good walk from Yungaburra if you park near Nick's Restaurant (about 2.5kms each way), or you can just drive there.
