We went for a drive along the Waterfall Way. It starts at the small village of Milla Milla only 24 kilometres from home. The scenery is lush and green, the continued dry weather has not, yet, taken effect. Unless rain comes soon the paddocks will start to dry out. It is a perfect time to see the waterfalls in all their glory. There are 7 waterfalls in this area but today we only visit 3, leaving the others for another days outing
The first waterfall on the circuit is the Milla Milla Falls. We have visited this area several times over the years but never have we seen so many people enjoying this splendid waterfall. It must be the beautiful weather that has drawn them all here. This is the reason we come north each year…
Note the date at the bottom of this cutting, it was prophetic…
As the Weekly photo challenge this week is to shoot 2 ways what better scene than this to try two ways..
Well I must admit that does not show the difference very well so I will try again with the next falls.
Zillie Falls are surrounded by the rainforest and the track in is steep and rugged. Very few people here.
The final waterfall we visit today is my favourite. Again it is quiet only a couple of other people here. The way down is steep
but it is well-formed and made easy by a concrete track and steps.
Rounding the last bend we are confronted with this magical scene as water cascades over the rocks and forms a veil of delicate beauty.
What came down must now go back up again….
It has been a beautiful day but now time to head home, the cats will be waiting and the chooks will want their evening feed.
As we drive toward home it is that magic golden hour time and we stop to take photos of the way it lights up this glorious landscape.
