Atherton Tablelands

Today we got off the beaten track a little and travelled all around the Atherton Tableland area. It was quite strange getting there because we spent about 30 mins driving up a mountain and then when we got up there the land completely plateaued off - guess thats why they call it a Tableland.

We took the waterfall circuit and saw some nice waterfalls with strange names like Milla Milla Falls, Zillie Falls (where the Timotei ad was filmed) and Ellinjaa falls. We then stopped in the middle of nowhere at a dairy and had the best scones and coffee ever!

We took a a detour around Mission Beach where we had intended to stay because the beach was really recommended in the Lonely Planet, but we didn't think much of it so we drove on to Ingham.

We spent the night in a campsite in Ingham which unfortunately was located between a traintrack and a highway which made for
a fairly noisy night, but I did get to see Wallabies for the first time; about 30 of them beside the campsite!
