The Curtain Fig Tree is located just outside the small township of Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands. It is well signed. There is a 180m return walk to the tree along a wooden boardwalk. This walk is not listed as wheelchair accessible, however, the gradients are moderate down to the tree and is easily manageable by both manual and power wheelchair users.

The fig tree is from the strangler fig species Fichus Virens. The curtain effect results from one tree leaning against another tree on a 45-degree angle. The strangler vine then grew along the oblique angle of the leaning tree, dangling 15 metres to the ground to create the curtain effect.
