The tree was about 50' from the car park. There was a wooden walkway to it that circled the tree. There was a sign that explains how the tree was formed. The tree itself was large. It was an easy stop just took 5 minutes ,stay longer if you like.

The boardwalk to this incredible tree is just lovely. The wildlife is in abundance and if you are lucky you just might see a tree kangaroo. Do NOT miss this attraction if you go to the Atherton Tablelands as it is a must see.

A wonderful opportunity to explore pristine tropical rain forest, safely walking on well maintained board walks. The curtain fig itself is stunning, both from a natural and an artistic perspective. A must visit if you're in the area.

Dragged my tired family to see this fascinating tree on the school holidays and they were not disappointed - it in fact picked up their energy levels. They were amazed with the sheer size and interesting facts about the tree and it's origins. The boardwalk was well developed and accessible for all people. Parking was also really well developed. Great... More

Easy to access, a visual delight. Easy parking and an essay walk around the tree. Definitely worthwhile making a quick detour to to see the Curtain Fig tree.

The Curtain fig and the Cathedral fig are both quite something. Both have intricate lattice patterns that have grown in these spectacular shapes. Giants of the rain forest. Flat wooden broad walks make it easy to get in to see each of these trees.

Never knew so much about what happens in the forest. Jus go in, relax and have your soul refreshed. Do not forget your camera even it might not be big enough.

Place seemed tidy. There was a strange dead smell. I think the fig is dead as there wasn't any leaves on it. First and last time. Lucky it was only two minute boardwalk trip
