Tropical Tablelands

This day we drove to the Atherton Tablelands region to see some waterfalls.  We saw three near a town called Millaa Millaa. 
Ellinjaa Falls

Zillie Falls
We saw a beautiful blue Ulysses butterfly here.

We drove over to Malanda and had a nice little lunch at a cafe there.  Ben and Sarah had meat pies which are a common lunch here, kind of like a pot pie you eat out of your hand.  Hannah and I had sandwiches and we had delicious pastries for dessert before going to see one more waterfall.

We did a couple of short hikes near these falls that were quite muddy.  On tap for tomorrow's posts are one last post about Mission Beach and a post about our trip to Hobart.
