Welcome to Curtain Fig Motel

Hi, we'd like to warmly welcome you to the Curtain Fig Motel in Yungaburra with its cosy, Heritage-style accommodation right in the heart of heritage-listed Yungaburra village.

Yungaburra was established in 1890 in the midst of the rainforest and was originally called Allumbah Pocket. Today Yungaburra's picturesque historical village still retains many of its original buildings, now heritage-listed, wonderfully preserving its classic village charm and relaxed ambience. Yungaburra is one of the favourite tourist destinations in tropical North Queensland - famous for its classic accommodation, fine restaurants, platypus viewing and monthly markets - and of course, being so close to Lake Tinaroo and the twin crater lakes of Eacham and Barrine.

Affordable and Comfortable! Accessible to all the tropical Atherton Tableland features.

The Curtain Fig Motel has been faithful to Yungaburra's colonial feel with its verandahs and timber railings, cosy rooms with timber trim and painted motifs, 'village atmosphere' and lush country gardens. We invite you to inspect our rooms, call us with any queries, and enjoy your holiday in the heart of the Crater Lakes & Waterfalls District of the tropical Atherton Tablelands, where, at over 700m in altitude, the weather is always near-perfect While enjoying your holiday with us, go exploring the Atherton Tableland and discover the pretty villages of Malanda, Millaa Millaa, Herberton, Tolga, Kairi, Kuranda and Ravenshoe, and regional centres of Atherton, Mareeba and Cairns with its Great Barrier Reef.
