Balancing Rock at the Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park – the track is 440m return.

Ravenshoe – pretty as a picture

Mungalli Falls – while it’s not a vertical drop, the flow can create a powerful scene, especially in heavy rainfall. Please note this waterfall is accessed through Mungalli Falls Outdoor Education. Please check directly with the owner/operator if public access is available.

The Herberton Spy & Camera Museum – enter a world of mystery and intrigue and step into the shoes of a spy.
