Atherton Tablelands

Gee I thouight the Daintree would be the pinnacle of the trip but the tablelands were easily on a par . We camped at Malandra Park , was pretty cool ,walks along the river and falls nearby. Then onto the curtain fig tree, that was magnificent this huge fig tree with roots hanging down, thick as, all along its width, creating this curtain effect. A peek at dinner falls, Peppina falls lunch at Milla Milla then onto the historical village at Heberton.

This village is a must see, all the shops date from the late 1800 to early 1900's and there stocked with the authentic original goods, you need to allow at least half a day to take it all in.

There is also a lot of old machinery and vehicles, it was really an amazing experience.

We then camped at Wild River Park, owner feeds the parrots in the morning, just brilliant, got some nice shots.

From here we moved on to Ravenshoe where as luck would have the cars from the Targa Rally were on display at the local oval, boy some expensive machinery there, offered to test some of them out for the boys but no takers......

On to Paonella Park where we did a night tour of the grounds and castles topped off with a performance from a visiting classical music group. This place is another must see, if you can be bothered look up the history of this place , its a fascinating story how it got to where it is now .This is where we camped and I did a self guided tour of the place in the morning....

As you've probably gathered we are heading south now, Woody had some business in Townsville so we had a stop over there....
