Once this was completed we headed to Ravenshoe (hoe not shoe) for those wondering, camp for this night was at the Railway camp grounds and $10 a night unpowered. As a point of interest or uninteresting fact Ravenshoe is the highest town in Queensland, unlike NSW’s highest town of Nimbin, this is actually a claim about height.
After setting up camp we headed in the car to Milla Milla Falls and we took the lovely scenic view up near the misty mountains to Milla Milla. The views up here were spectacular and many times I pulled over so that Rosalee could capture the vista.
Milla Milla falls lived up to its reputation as being magnificent and despite the kids being a little disappointed that they had not brought their swimmers, we enjoyed feeling the mist hit us from the waterfall.
After this we headed to Mungalli Creek dairy and enjoyed a biodynamic ice creams for the kids 3 Belgian chocolate and 1 mango, for mum a flourless chocolate cake and Dad lost out and had a mango milkshake (should have had mango ice cream). With beautiful food and fantastic views it was a great day.
When we arrived back at Ravenshoe the temperature was plummeting down it was 8 degrees at 6pm and it hit a low of 2 degrees overnight, it was the coldest night we have had. Makes you appreciate that we are actually missing winter this year.
