Curtain Fig Tree
A towering tree with enormous curtain-like roots.
March 14, 2022
Measuring almost 50 metres tall and 40 metres wide with an estimated age of over 500-years-old is the Curtain Fig Tree — the crown jewel of the Curtain Fig Tree National Park located in the picturesque Atherton Tablelands.
The tree was named after its beautifully draped aerial roots that hang from above and is easily accessible via a 10-minute stroll along a timber boardwalk. The park is open 24 hours a day which offers the opportunity to spot nocturnal wildlife in the evening. Or, if you venture there during daylight, look out for the brightly coloured double-eyed fig parrots that are often seen feeding in this area.
