The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 35 Kuranda, Queensland, Au

Scenic drive through Millaa Milaa ( the town that went troppo) and onto the waterfall circuit which takes in the Millaa Millaa, Zillie and Elingaa falls. We spot many interesting bird species including lapwings, brush turkeys and laughing kookaburras as well as morpho and other butterflies.
Tasty lunch of curried pumpkin soup with cheese & shallot panini at the Malanda Dairy Centre where the service and food are excellent.
Met Jeanine again for tea before heading north through coffee plantation country to Kuranda where we camp at the Rainforest Accomodation Park.
"Malanda is a small town on the Atherton Tableland in Far North Queensland, Australia. It is Located 85 km from Cairns and 732 m above-sea level. Malanda was first developed in the 1880s when the discovery of tin at Herberton saw a steady stream of miners moving over the mountains from the coast. It is the administrative centre for Eacham Shire Council." Source:
