In the rain shadow of the Great Dividing Range, dry open woodlands surround Big Millstream Falls, reputedly the widest single-drop falls in Australia. The park is rich in World War II history.


The two park entrances are within 4.5 km of Ravenshoe, which is 147 km from Cairns via the Gillies Highway


The Aboriginal Traditional Owners (TOs) of this area—the Jirrbal people—welcome you to Millstream Falls National Park. The TOs continue their cultural obligations and ask that visitors respect and care for the area. The area is rich in cultural history and has many significant sites and story places.
