Yes, you guessed it, we have been looking at more waterfalls and tasting more cheeses. A hard job but someone has to do it. Lucky it’s up to us.
Wednesday morning was very cool and overcast so we felt it was a good day to see some tourist attractions. It had been a few visits since we had been to Milla Milla Falls which never fail to give the wow factor. As we arrived early it was nice and quiet, as awesome as ever to watch and so peaceful. We got our best selfie yet here.
From here it was off to Mungalli Falls but first a stop off at the Mungalli Creek Dairy. This was a pretty little place, high up on the Tableland. We felt like we were on top of the world. We did not get to cheese taste here as they were low on milk to complete the making, so we tasted dips and yoghurts instead. The yoghurts were very smooth, creamy and 97% fat free. After purchasing some we headed to the falls.
Another picturesque place to visit. These falls start on the top landfall and meander down to a lovely boardwalk. It wasn’t the best day for rainforest walking and my energy levels were a bit low, tired, so the enthusiasm was a bit lacking, but we still enjoyed the view from the lookout.
We headed back to Malanda for lunch, the over to Atherton for some shopping. On our way back we called into the Gallo Cheese And Chocolate Factory. Wow! There was some tasty stuff happening here. Once again we missed out on seeing the factory in action but we certainly got to taste some beautiful cheeses and saw some delectable chocolates bring made. I did some souvenir shopping here and, of course, some cheese shopping.
On the way back into Malanda we stopped off at the Malanda Falls. Still a lovely little place to have a look and enjoy the serenity and peace of the water. No platypus spotting this time. Too early in the afternoon and too cold, maybe.
Back home to a lovely roast dinner done in the weber, a couple of drinks and a relaxing evening. Tomorrow, Thursday we prepare for our camping weekend in O’Brien’s Creek, Mt Surprise and pick up our boys in Cairns. Yay!!
