Yungaburra Attractions

The Curtain Fig Tree
• Curtain Fig Rd, YUNGABURRA
• Located just outside of the township of Yungaburra is one of the largest trees in North Queensland. At over 800 years and standing some 50 metres high with a spread of 39 metres wide, this amazing and unusual attraction is a fine example of the natural world. The tree is part of the genus Ficus ‘Strangler Fig’, a species known as Ficus virens, more commonly called a ‘Curtain Fig’.

The curtain effect resulted from the first tree being strangled by the developing Curtain Fig tree. The first tree then fell into a neighbouring tree (which is a stage unique to the development of the Curtain Fig tree). Vertical roots then grow down from the Curtain Fig tree to form the curtain-like appearance. The host trees die and rots away, leaving the Curtain Fig tree free-standing.

To protect the site and provide views from all angles, there is an elevated boardwalk surrounds the Curtain Fig Tree. A story board at the site details the ‘Creation of the Curtain Fig’ with a welcome from the Traditional Owners of this country, the Ngadjon-Jii.
