First stop lake Barene.
Do a wonderful fried brekkie

Now it's Lake Eacham.
Lovely fish in there and turtles.

Can't remember where the waterfall was.
There is a tour you can do on the Tablelands taking in about 8 different falls.

Now, this is Lake Tinaroo which is a bloody gurt lake.

Water sports, restuarants, holiday camps.....you get the picture.
They even put boats on it

We decided to visit a coffee plantation.
Bit of a drive off the main road but worthwhile.
