First stop to Lake Barrine Rainforest Cruise and Teahouse Cafe. The view was really spectacular. Worth the time to drive from Cairns to Lake Barrine. Their food was also very tasty.
Our family also visited a cheese factory Gallo Dairyland and had lunch there. We bought quite a fair bits of chocolates are gifts for friends.
A good place to venture if you ae really into food and scenery.
