It’s 8km off the main road to the carpark, it is suitable for caravans and motorhomes, it has a turning … Continue reading Josephine Falls

Babinda Farm Stay

We stayed a couple of nights at the Babinda Rainforest Farm & Alpacas. Absolutely lovely place. Lovely lush green grass, running clear creek, walks, chooks, ducks, alpacas, geese, ulysses butterflies, cassowaries. Very peaceful. The only downside is large horse flies that bite (which may be seasonal) and being in the rainforest particularly near the creek … Continue reading Babinda Farm Stay

South

Mossman is as far north we are going this time, it was time to start heading south to be in Brisbane for Christmas with the family. After leaving Mossman we did a slight detour into Port Douglas. Very touristy, loads of expensive looking resorts and several caravan parks. We did a brief walk up 4 … Continue reading South

Mossman Gorge

It was great to be on the move again and exploring new places. We stopped for the night at Rifle Creek Rest Area which is just out of Mt Molloy. Another spot we have stayed several times. Great for a one nighter. Then it was onto to Mossman and to the Mossman Golf Club RV … Continue reading Mossman Gorge

Mareeba Bush Stays

After our time in Chillagoe we popped down the range to Kuranda for a few days. We have been to Kuranda 4 times, the first time about 34 yrs ago when we came up from Cairns via the Kuranda Train. Back then the original markets were awesome, unfortunately the current ones are not a scratch … Continue reading Mareeba Bush Stays

Caves, caves, caves

OMG where to start. The caves in the Chillagoe area are amazing. We stopped at Eureka Creek rest area for the night on the way to and from Chillagoe to Mareeba. Nothing fancy about the rest area itself, it’s close to the road and on a corner but does have a creek which was so … Continue reading Caves, caves, caves

Upward

The next few days and nights was just moving up and west. We stopped at MacRossan Park on the Burdekin River, about 22km east of Charters Towers which wasn’t a bad spot.

Ravenswood

Ravenswood is appox 80km from the Burdekin Falls Dam heading north towards the Flinders Hwy 88km east Of Charters Towers. The turnoff into the town is 1km off the main road and worth taking the detour. It was like we stepped back into the 1800’s. Ravenswood was once a thriving gold mining town. Today it … Continue reading Ravenswood
