Malanda Falls Visitor Centre
The rebuilt Malanda Falls Visitor Centre, and its award winning modern building reflects the area’s geological formations, and the connection to country, as seen through the eyes of the local Ndgaonji tribe.
The Malanda Falls Visitor Centre is an accredited Tourism Queensland Visitor Information Centre within the Tablelands Regional Council area of Tropical North Queensland. In the midst of the renowned Crater Lakes and Waterfalls region, the Centre offers the full range of free visitor services and assistance from local volunteers.
The Centre is also an environmental education centre, with interpretive interactive displays on the cultural and natural history of the unique Tablelands volcanic region and its wildlife.
Indigenous cultural information is complemented by the Rainforest Dreaming guided walks through the adjacent Malanda Falls Conservation Park with Ngadjon man Drew Morta. Drew is the first indigenous accredited Wet Tropics Tour Guide, in the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics Region. Guided walks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, need to be booked in advance and offer visitors the opportunity to see the rare Lumholtz’s Tree-kangaroo, as well as discover traditional ways of the local indigenous people.
Malanda Falls is Heritage listed and offers safe family swimming and picnic areas.
