Photo Friday: Halloran's Hill

Kids love the adventure playground at Halloran's Hill

Unique public art is a feature of the Halloran's Hill picnic area

Native wildlife, like this red-legged pademelon, are often seen here

The rainforest walking trail is great for families with children to explore

The play area features a number of different activities including this path with animal footprint trails

Halloran's Hill is one of my favourite spots to for for a picnic in the Cairns Highlands. It's a little off the beaten track, as you drive through the streets of Atherton to find it, but once you get there its certainly worth the effort. Read more

    G'day Peace, this is a wonderful blog & the tablelands are a beautiful area, there is only one thing I disagree with & that is the term "Cairns Highlands" it's really the "Atherton Tablelands"


  7. This looks like a tonic for the nature-challenged! Sounds like it has it all: playgrounds, picnicing and trails. Wonderful!
