My early morning walk around the garden became a wander through a mystical paradise, shrouded in mist, a sure sign of a beautiful, clear winter day to follow.
Winter on the Tablelands is a beautiful place to be. Most days are mild and sunny with a temperature around 25c-27c degrees. The evenings are 10c-12c cooler but we are lucky to have a wood burner fire-box to keep us and the cats warm and cosy.
Today the weather was perfect to visit one of the waterfalls the tablelands are renowned for and take a walk through the rainforest. Malanda Falls is only a short drive away.
