The meals are plentiful and tasty, the three star air conditioned ensuite accommodation is very comfortable and welcomes you each night.

Horse Riding Adventure

Horse riding on the 1,660 acre property is the most popular attraction. The Resort has over 50 gentle mannered horses to choose from, so all ages and levels of experience are well catered for. The rides are over pasture and bush land where you can enjoy the cattle and perhaps also the wildlife. The friendly staff endeavour to make it a ride you will not forget, by helping you with your skills along the way.

Each month as close to the full moon we enjoy a night ride and dinner. An evening spent around the fire with friends and family is an adventure that will stay in your memories for a long time.

The afternoon kicks off about 4.30pm with the ride out to the Susan River where a bowl of hot pumpkin soup and bread is waiting for you. Enjoy a billy tea or coffee before climbing back on the horses for a night trek back to the homestead. By then the stars or the moon is out and brightening the way for you. A full barbecue smorgasbord is waiting for the riders & friends to devour in the recently renovated restaurant.

Ravenshoe

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
Ravenshoe, the highest town in Queensland at 920 metres, is a lush region of mountain pastures and un-spoiled World Heritage rainforest. Situated five kilometres from Ravenshoe you will find windmills that are 45 metres freestanding and twenty of them together is a spectacular sight to behold and feed enough power to into the national grid to power 3,500 homes.

Tully Falls and Tully Gorge

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Follow the scenic Tully Falls Road to the spectacular Tully Gorge Lookout. The falls only run in a big wet season, but the walls of raw rock and rainforest which plunge 300 metres (984 feet) down to the Tully River are still an awe-inspiring sight.

Millaa Millaa

Millaa Millaa, Tablelands Area
Millaa Millaa is an Aboriginal word meaning plenty of water or waterfall and this is as true as ever as some of the most beautiful waterfalls are within a few minutes drive of the town. The main one of course is Millaa Millaa but further along Tourist Drive number nine stop in and photograph Zillie Falls and Ellinjaa Falls to name a few.

Frankland Islands Dive Site

East Russell, Cairns Area
Located south of Cairns, the Frankland Islands don’t see as many tourists as other destinations off this busy holiday city, making it the perfect destination for the snorkeler and less experienced diver.

Eubenangee Swamp National Park

Babinda, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Eubenangee Swamp, an important wetland in the coastal lowlands between Ingham and Cairns, is a birdwatchers' paradise. Over 190 species of birds have been recorded here. Sitting below the Bellenden Ker Range (the wettest part of Australia), much of this park is flooded during the wet season.

Mamu Tropical Skywalk

Innisfail, Cassowary Coast Area
From AU$20 - 24
The Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway is a spectacular walk through the canopy of World Heritage rainforest. It is an iconic tourist attraction in the heart of the Wet Tropics. With a 350 metre long elevated walkway through the canopy, a cantilever, a 37 metre observation tower and more than 1200 metres of walking tracks, this attraction is a must do for anyone visiting the region.

Tully

Tully, Cassowary Coast Area
Tully is a small town about 140 kilometres (or about two hours' drive) south of Cairns and has the reputation of being one of the wettest towns in Australia. With all that rain, the nearby Tully River is one of the best places in Australia to go white water rafting.

Babinda

Babinda, Cairns Area
The small blue timber building on the corner of Bruce Highway and Monro Street clearly indicates that this community is serious about tourism. This is the official tourist information centre and its location is designed to catch your attention when you enter town.

Pepina Falls

Millaa Millaa, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Pepina Falls are best viewed in the time just after the "Green Season". The "Green Season" sometimes known as the wet season runs from January to the end of April most years. Located in a little seen area off the Old Palmerston Highway (the scenic route between Millaa Millaa and Ravenshoe) on Maalan Road they certainly provide a photographic opportunity.

Russell River National Park

Bramston Beach, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Paperbarks and mangrove forests line the many creeks and rivers in tranquil, unspoiled Russell River National Park. Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area, the park sits near the estuary of the Russell and Mulgrave rivers and is a fisher's paradise.
