Your guide to Tinaroo Falls Dam

All About Tinaroo Falls Dam

Located in Far North Queensland, Tinaroo Falls Dam was built in 1958 to provide a consistent water supply to the tobacco crops of the Atherton Tableland. The adjacent Lake Tinaroo is a popular spot for anglers due to being stocked with fish.

Nearby, you can also visit the tiny settlement of Tinaroo that is home to just over 200 people and was originally built to house the dam’s workers. Although the town is small, there are many amenities to help visitors during your stay here. If you’re looking for something specific, you can also head to the bigger towns of Yungaburra and Atherton, which are within a 20-minute drive away.

The Danbulla National Park is located close to the dam. In the park, it is possible to explore the beautiful crater lakes as you make your way through the park’s rainforests featuring strangler figs as well as eucalyptus and acacia forests.


How do I get around Tinaroo Falls Dam?

The closest airport to Tinaroo Falls Dam is the Cairns Airport (CNS). From there, it is approximately a 1.5 hour drive to the dam. There are no public transport options, so it is necessary to hire a car at the airport. Once you arrive at Tinaroo Falls Dam, it is possible to travel around the lake by private boat or by strolling along the lake path. To visit the nearby towns of Atherton or Yungaburra, you can either drive or cycle, as public transportation options in the area are very limited. Be wary as some of the roads are unsealed and may be dangerous for cycling.


When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Tinaroo Falls Dam?

The summer is the hottest and wettest season, making it potentially dangerous for swimming and hiking due to flooding caused by the heavy rain and cyclones. The spring and autumn are great months to travel to a Lake Tinaroo accommodation as it is dry here and the temperatures still allow you to take advantage of the area’s many outdoor activities. The winters tend to be a bit drier and can offer some great options for outdoor activities such as bushwalking and fishing. However, keep in mind that the weather can be a little chilly during this time so make sure to pack plenty of layers.


What are the top things to do in Tinaroo Falls Dam?

Lake Tinaroo & TInaroo Falls Dam

A popular spot for swimming, sailing, and walking, Lake Tinaroo was created by the damming of the Barron River. The dam wall is a gravity concrete structure that stands 43 metres high and 533 metres long. While it’s interesting to look at, the main highlight here is Lake Tinaroo. Since it was built, it has also become a popular spot for fishing, thanks to the large stock of barramundi, sooty grunter, sleep cod, archerfish, and fork-tailed catfish.

Cathedral Fig

This gorgeous strangler fig tree is an impressive 500 years old and it is large enough that people can walk inside of it and see its root system. The tree is located in the Danbulla State Forest and it is a lovely drive to get there, passing through rain forests and pine forests.

Crater Lakes National Park

This gorgeous national park is home to two sparkling crater lakes surrounded by lush rainforest. Lake Barrine features a lovely walking track surrounded by giant bull kauri pine trees and boat cruises that allow you to explore more of the lake. Lake Eacham is the perfect place to go for a refreshing swim while an array of birds flit through the trees overhead.
