Mt Sorrow Ridge walk

I found this track a beautiful but hard walk just out of Cape Tribulation town. This track is now well worn and thanks to fellow bushwalkers has been clearly marked with pink flagging tape. The 1st kilometre is fairly steep with log hops and tree roots to watch for, but the 2nd undulates slightly and can be power walked. From there to the top the trail is very steep and you will be pulling yourself up tree roots and tiny rock handholds; there is even a section where a rope has been provided to aid your climb. At the top there is a viewing platform with great views of Cape Tribulation Beach to the east.

There are no creeks on the walk, so take plenty of water (min 3lt). Stinging Trees, Leeches (in the wet season) and spiky palm leaves and creepers abound! This is also Cassowary country. The forest is thick, so no views till you reach the summit. Leave yourself plenty of time for the return walk as the 'canopy cover' dusk will be about 1hr earlier than in the open.

Don't be tempted with a cooling swim on Cape Tribulation Beach on your return, as you might just get snapped up!

Millaa Millaa Falls

Millaa Millaa Falls is the most beautiful and iconic waterfall of the waterfall-laden Atherton Tablelands region. What the falls has going for it, is a lush rainforest setting fringed with broad ferns, colourful flowers and a plunge pool suitable for swimming. Even though the size of the falls is modest, at 18.3m, it possessed a photo-friendly classical rectangular shape, which complements the idyllic scenery well.

From Finch Hatton Gorge picnic area, a moderate circuit with uphill sections leads you through lush rainforest and between granite boulders to the lookout above Araluen Cascades. If you are keen to swim, observe safety signs, jumping and diving into the water is prohibited. Variable water depths, submerged rocks and logs, and fast flowing water combine to make this activity extremely dangerous. Accidents have resulted in serious injury and a number of deaths
