About Tully Falls
Tully Falls National Park is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and one of the wettest areas of Australia. The transition between vegetation types supports a wide range of animal life. Many of these animals—like golden bowerbirds and Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroos—are only found in the Wet Tropics. Walk through lush rainforest, sit beside tumbling waterfalls and rest beside clear mountain streams.
- Stay on the formed roads—off-road trail-bike riding and four-wheel driving is not allowed. Mountain-bikes are not permitted on walking tracks or boardwalks unless specifically signposted.
- Avoiding driving and riding on unsealed roads during and after heavy rains.
- Wash vehicles and gear thoroughly before entering this park to prevent the spread of weeds and diseases.
- Leave pets at home—domestic animals are prohibited.
- Take your rubbish home with you—no bins are provided.
