We were lucky to be in Mareeba when they had their multicultural festival. We where staying at the Mareeba rodeo grounds caravan park for only $15 a powered site, great value, 4km from the town centre it was a nice easy bike ride.
The weather was a perfect sunny 27deg with a slight breeze. So we spent the day ensconced under one of the huge shady trees and enjoyed the day.
Mareeba is a very multicultural area with 64 different nationality groups all living in harmony in this fertile area of the Atherton Tablelands.
