Ryan: Where To Go / Sightseeing
Lit Sing Gung Chinese Temple, Innisfail
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.

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. Birdwatching is rewarding, as the different vegetation types attract many birds. Remember to be croc wise.

Josephine Falls, Wooroonooran National Park
Wander along the walking track through lush tropical rainforest to viewing decks overlooking Josephine Creek and falls. From here, enjoy excellent views and opportunities for photography. Do not enter the restricted access area around the top of the falls. Serious injuries and deaths have occurred here. Penalties apply. Flash flooding (rapidly rising water) is common during wetter months. Rapid and unpredictable water level rises have isolated people on the far bank requiring their rescue. The rocks are also exceptionally slippery, the water cold and submerged objects may be in the creek. Never jump or dive into the water and take care around steep slopes and rock faces along the track and at the lookout.
