Day 76 – 30/7/2019 on this Midlife Adventure.
Time to get back to nature and Girringun National Park, Qld, the home of Wallaman Falls, Qld the highest single fall waterfall in Australia.
The journey up takes you past sugar cane and into farming land. The cattle breed that mainly makes up the north is the Droughtmaster.
Once you get to the state forest you rapidly start going up hill, there are signs not to take a caravan up there, and I’m glad I didn’t try.
The lookout at the top of the falls is excellent and give you a clear view of the waterfall.
It doesn’t give you the context of size very well in photos but when I was up there I could see a person down by the rocks near the water and even then you could barely make out it was a person.
There is a walk to the base, and whilst they have not yet built the chairlift up so whilst there were many who are happy to walk down and worse back up… i’m not one of them. There is however a shorter walk to see the other side of the valley that was much easier so you get a picture of that.
I also captured a video of the falls.
On arrival back down it was off to the pub for some lunch and I went to the Lee’s Hotel, the home of the original Pub with No Beer. So now I have been past the Original and the one near Kempsey.
Then I enjoyed lunch which was a massive bowl of garlic prawns. I would highly recommend that no one kisses me tonight!.
The day’s continue to roll and the experiences get better and better in this Midlife Adventure.
