We drove from Palm Cover to the Milla Milla Waterfall, beautiful scenery enroute and a fabulous waterfall to swim in, Be warned the water is freezing. Visited a platypus local attraction on our return, seeing them in their natural environment was fabulous.

Spending a full day looking at these natural wonders is such a peaceful and wonderful day. Better still there no expenses to view these wonders apart from Paronella Park which is well worth the visit. Highly recommended !

Beautiful scenery, fantastic waterfalls and great walking tracks. Best way to see the area is to hire a car and drive yourself, this way you get to stay longer at areas you like and go to other areas that aren't on the tours.
