About Little Millstream Falls
Little Millstream Falls seemed to be a convergence of a handful of cascading waterfalls on The Millstream watercourse.
Unlike its larger namesake further down The Millstream, there wasn’t much in the way of signage nor fanfare concerning this waterfall.
As you can see from the photo above that this lack of notoriety largely has to do with its fairly underwhelming appearance as nothing more than a disjoint series of smaller waterfalls.
In fact, I’d argue that this waterfall is really more of a swimming hole as opposed to a waterfall attraction.
In any case, from the Little Millstream car park (see directions below), I took a track that gently descended towards the large plunge pool at the base of the Little Millstream Falls.
Along the way, I was afforded contextual views of the waterfall itself, and I’d argue that this was where you get the most satisfying views of the falls.
The trail eventually curled towards the waterfall before making a brief switchback as it descended towards the plunge pool.
Aside from a partial close-up view of part of the Little Millstream Falls, the trail pretty much degenerates into a bit of a muddy and slippery rocky scramble at the end.
Once along the shores of The Millstream at the large plunge pool, I’d have to scramble even further downstream in order to get a more satisfying frontal look at the waterfalls.
But other than that, this spot is really more suited for swimming as opposed to taking pictures.
Overall, this visit should take no more than a half-hour covering roughly 800m round-trip.
Little Millstream Falls resides in the Atherton Tablelands Region near Millaa Millaa, Queensland. It is administered by the Tablelands Regional Council. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website or Facebook page.
From the Kennedy Hwy (Hwy 1) at Ravenshoe (that’s “ravens hoe” not “raven shoe”), we turned left (south) onto Tully Falls Rd then continued for about 500m.
Then, we turned right onto Wooroora Rd, where we then followed this road for the next 1.5km to the turnoff on our right for Millstream Falls National Park.
From there, we followed the signs to the car park and trailhead though the access road was a bit rutted and beat up (causing a passenger car to easily bottom out as of my latest visit in late June 2022).
Going this latter route, we saw an impressive wind farm that I believe is called the Atherton Wind Farm.
