Ravenshoe

Ravenshoe, the highest town in Queensland at 930 metres, is a lush region of mountain pastures and unspoiled World Heritage rainforest. Situated five kilometres from Ravenshoe you will find windmills that are 46 metres freestanding and twenty of them together is a spectacular sight to behold and has become a popular tourist attraction. The windmills were built to provide the district with an alternative and environmentally power supply. In 1987 when World Heritage listing of the Wet Tropics occurred Ravenshoe was a timber town producing beautiful furniture timbers as well as veneers. Today, the town still has a timber mill operating using mainly plantation pine.

From Ravenshoe, the Tully Falls Road leads south and becomes an unsealed road 25 kilometres out. At this point you can take a short walk to overlook the impressive 293 metre Tully Falls at Tully Gorge.

After returning to Ravenshoe travel west along the Kennedy Highway to Innot Hot Springs, natural mineral springs that are ideal for reviving travellers. Along the way you can visit the spectacular Millstream Falls, the widest waterfalls in Australia. Little Millstream Falls, on Tully Falls Road, are also well worth a visit.

Distance from Cairns is 147 kilometres.

Distance from Brisbane (state capital) is 1718 kilometres.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
