On the road to Townsville

We just finished our tour at the North of Cairns, so it was time to start the journey to Brisbane: departure for Townsville.

On our way, a first stop to visit Kuranda’s markets. Kuranda is an old mining town which became a touristic destination for its train and its attractions like markets and animals parks.

After this day to walk around, we stayed for one night in Kuranda and left the morning after. The next stop was about one hour later when we arrived close to the Curtain Fig Tree. It is one of the largest trees in Queensland. It’s a strangler fig tree because it germinates on another tree before covering it with its roots. In this case, the hosting tree tilted towards the next one and the fig tree also grows around that one.

Then, we stopped at Herberton’s historical village (a 27$ entry is too pricy for what it is). We were expecting an ‘alive’ village from the era of miners with reconstitutions but it is more an open-air museum.

 

Then we hit the road again to Townsville. The good thing when you are not in a hurry it’s that you can stop wherever you want. Well, it’s exactly what we did when we saw a sign indicating ‘Millaa Milla Falls’.

 

Yeah, not really amazing… So, we just hit the road again…
