We hired a car for the day and drive round the tablelands visiting the main Waterfalls. Thy were all so beautiful! Josephine falls offers a natural rock slide which is so much fun! Millaa millaa the most famous, is gorgeous and worth the visit.

We just stayed at On The Wallaby. It was economy friendly, clean, cosy, super friendly and the food is sourced locally and is excellent. Not over the top prices either. Highly recommended!
