Begin your journey as we head South towards the stunning tropical mountain range of Wooroonooran National park, while your local, friendly and professional guide will point out many places of interest and share history as well as locals knowledge.

We’ll then make our way through endless banana and sugar cane farms before making a quick stop in the small town of Babinda, where you can try locally famous pastries & sweets. As we set off again, we pass through Innisfail before entering Cassowary territory.

Keep your eyes peeled as this is where we now begin our Cassowary spotting! While you learn why the rainforest is so dependent on this very rare, historic, flightless birds existence and many interesting facts while enjoying afternoon tea on the pristine beach and taking in the beauty of Etty Bay, Followed by some free time to explore the beach and surroundings at your leisure.

Upon arrival to Paronella Park, begin your experience with a fully guided day tour, followed by an optional tour of Queensland’s first privately owned hydroelectricity plant. Or, if you prefer, explore the grounds at your leisure & discover why the park was voted the number 1 must do attraction in Queensland.

Meet your guide at the museum and take a look at the many interesting pieces of history, before taking a leisurely stroll across the suspension bridge and over the beautiful Mena Creek Falls to capture an amazing photo opportunity.

After the epic photos we’ll make our way to Menu Creek Hotel, Also voted best country pub in Queensland, where dinner (optional) will be served. Taste some of the local beers or challenge your skills on the games tables.

After dinner, we return to Paronella Park for  the ‘Darkness Falls Tour’ allowing for more spectacular photo opportunities of the waterfalls and structures of the castles by night, Then its time to sit back and enjoy the amazing grand finale light show.
