Long Description:
The first of three waterfalls (Millaa Millaa, Zillie and Ellinjaa Falls) located in the Millaa Millaa area, Millaa Millaa Falls is in my opinion the pick of the three.

Although Millaa Millaa Falls flows all year around the flow during the "Dry Season" drops dramatically. We have included two photos one taken during the "Dry Season" ( about April to December) and one during the "Wet Season" (about January to March) to show this dramatic difference.

Situated 821 mtrs above sea level Millaa Millaa Falls has ample parking as well as BBQ's, picnic tables and toilets available. For the more adventurous there is even a short bush walk from the bottom car park, where you may have the chance to see the Ulysses Butterfly (Papilio ulysses).

If these falls look familiar too you, you may have seen them featured in ads for Qantas, Shampoo and the Australian Beer XXXX (that's pronounced 4X) as "Jacko's Retreat".

The Millaa Millaa Falls are also popular for Weddings with locals saying it is lucky to be married beside the waters of the fall.
