Atherton Tableland

It was a 3 hour drive to from Mission Beach to Atherton even though it was only 180 kms. This was due to travelling over the highest peaks in Qld, on roads like the Clyde mountain for about 2 hrs. We also came across lots of road works. Saw lots of interesting crops growing:  Bananas, avocadoes, tea and more sugar cane. Unfortunately there was no where to stop and photograph them. Lots of signs of things crossing the road: tree kangaroos, cassowaries, sugar trains, and cattle.
We enjoyed the quiet Woodland, van park, also on edge of the rainforest, but it went down to about 8 degrees, which felt cold in our van.
 "life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain." With this view we completed the waterfall circuit drive and walks, near Atherton, the next day. We have to expect rain in this part of Qld.
