Tropical Far North Queensland

This is about my holiday from Cairns to
Laura, on the lower Cape York Peninsula from
September 2008 to October 2008. Going from Melbourne to Cairns to Port Douglas, to Cooktown and Laura, Cape Tribulation and all the bits in between, and finally back to Cairns for my flight home.

23. Atherton Tablelands - Waterfall Circuit

Tuesday 23 September

The last item on today's agenda was the waterfall circuit. A lovely drive and well worth doing. I have included both vertical and horizontal shots here to give some idea of the grandeur of these falls.

Millaa Millaa Falls

This is the photo you will see in all the tourist brochures and is the one all tour companies stop at. It is perhaps the most well known and is symbolic of the Tablelands, which is why I photographed them with the red flowers in front. I had to wait around 25 minutes to take this as there were people swimming in front of it.

Zillie Falls

The white gushing water travels at an incredible speed.

Ellinjaa Falls

This was the last in the circuit and to reach these falls it is necessary to go a long way down - down many steps. You could hear the waterfall long before you saw it.

Another Wicked Camper

This van was parked near one of the waterfalls. Since seeing it, I have used this as my motto when travelling.

Dairy Cattle

These two cows crossed directly in front of my car.
