Atherton Table Lands
Georga and I took a long drive up to the Atherton table lands in a hire Holden Barina. It was a good little car which performed well both on the highway, through the tight corners going up to the table lands and on the tracks on the following weekend up at Cape Tribulation.
This trip was more fun than I have had in a long while. We went to all of the small towns. Had lunch at Kuranda, a fantastic little town at the top of the hill. We then went on to Mareeba where we visited a Rivers direct outlet shop.
From there we went on to Atherton where we planned to see Crystal Caves, but they were closed by the time we got there. But we were directed to the local cheese and chocolate factory and some of the most spectacular waterfalls that I have ever seen. After a long day driving getting back to the pub/backpackers I was staying at, shenanigans, was a relief.
