Miriwinni: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Josephine Falls, Wooroonooran National Park


Josephine Creek starts as a gentle trickle high on the south-east side of the summit of Queensland's highest mountain, Bartle Frere. By the time it has travelled the 7.5 kilometres to the smooth granite boulders of Josephine Falls, it is a thundering torrent that will take your breath away.

Enjoy the 1.2 kilometre return walk through lush, world heritage-listed rainforest to viewing decks over the picturesque falls.

Stay clear of the restricted access area as serious injuries and deaths have ccurred here. Penalties apply. Water conditions can be unpredictable and hazardous. Obey all safety signs and only swim in the designated area.

Eubenangee Swamp National Park


Eubenangee Swamp, an important wetland in the coastal lowlands between Ingham and Cairns, is a birdwatchers' paradise. Over 190 species of birds have been recorded here.

Sitting below the Bellenden Ker Range (the wettest part of Australia), much of this park is flooded during the wet season.

As well as being a significant habitat for waterbirds, and crocodiles, the park also protects some of the last remnants of various lowland vegetation types.

Stroll along the 1.5 kilometre return walking track that follows the Alice River, through rainforest to the top of a grassy hill and enjoy views of Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, Queensland's two highest peaks, as well as the swamp and its many waterbirds. Remember to be croc wise.

Russell River National Park


Paperbarks and mangrove forests line the many creeks and rivers in tranquil, unspoiled Russell River National Park.

Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area, the park sits near the estuary of the Russell and Mulgrave rivers and is a fisher's paradise.

Set up camp on the beach, surrounded by paperbark and mangrove forests, in the shadow of the Graham Range. Sit back and watch a brilliant sunrise before heading out to fish in the mouth of Bluemetal Creek and in the nearby rivers and tributaries.

Be croc-wise in croc country!

Lit Sing Gung Chinese Temple, Innisfail


The bright coloured Chinese temple in Owen Street will attract your attention and draw you in to explore its interior. The temple was designed by Cairns architect Edwin Orchard, and completed in January 1941. The trustees were Johnstone See Poy and A C Marwick. It replaced an earlier temple that had been located on the corner of Edith and Owen Streets, established by Tom See Poy.

Like many of Innisfail's early buildings, it was substantially damaged by the cyclone of March 1918. The Chinese community rebuilt it later that year as a place of worship and reflection to deities of the Taoist, Confucian and Buddhist traditions.

It served as accommodation for elderly Chinese men who had failed to make their fortune on the gold fields, and could not return home empty-handed. Chinese New Year and Moon festivals were celebrated there with dragon parades and fireworks. Accommodation in the old temple was sub-standard and the new one was designed to include quality accommodation.

This space now houses a museum featuring items from Dora See Poy's personal collection, including photographs, clothes and original shop fittings from the family's successful mercantile store. The temple and museum are open to visitors daily.

Innisfail Art Deco Tours


Join them on a free 30 minute tour of the Art Deco inspired Innisfail Shire Hall!

The Innisfail Shire Hall is the jewel in the crown, of the Art Deco Capital of Australia - Innisfail.

It was built to provide jobs as part of an employment relief scheme instigated by the Queensland Government during the great depression of the 1930's

It was in this climate that the Johnstone Shire Council erected the Shire Hall which has dominated the Innisfail Skyline for over 70 years. The Shire Hall was built by Peter and William Van Leeuwin who built many other buildings in the town which are still standing today.

When it was opened it was said to rival any Hall built in Sydney.

After extensive damage in Cyclone Larry the Hall was modernised but kept its Art Deco features to bring it to modern day standards.
