The road up to the Falls is very similar to the Paluma range. Very narrow and lots of hairpin bends. But everyone was very well behaved slowing down when passing us. The road isn’t suitable for caravans or trailers but we saw plenty going up as there is a nice camping area nearby.
The Falls are really spectacular, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. We climbed down to the base of the falls, quite easy peasy, climbing up was of course a lot harder and the last bit was similar to being on a step machine, great for the calves😳😳

The drive to Broadwater was fine, flat all the way through sugar cane plantations.
The last 20 kms is dirt but nice and smooth.
This would be a beautiful place to camp, the creek is crystal clear and flowing over small rocky rapids.
There’s only really a couple of small walks, the rainforest loop is very dark but we did spot quite a few birds there though very hard to get good photos and Anthony left his big flash at home so that was handy.
I did spot the little Pale Yellow Robin building a nest so we watched in awe for quite some time. The male came and fed the female a worm while she was busy nesting, how cool is that?? Such a gentleman.
We also spotted a Yellow breasted Boatbill on the other walk. Very hard to get good photos as he was always in the tops of the trees but what a gorgeous little bird.

So we might just potter around the pod for the weekend now and get some jobs done, but I’m sure we will still have time in the mornings to check out Tyto Wetlands again. It really is one of our most favourite places and we are still trying to get more crimson finch and little Kingfisher photos.
