The Cassowary Coast: Warrina Lakes
An interesting place to visit while you're exploring the Cassowary Coast is Warrina Lakes. Here you'll find a great playground, small botanical garden and a charming lake with water lillies, ducks and turtles.
Just minutes from the centre of Innisfail, Warrina Lakes has all the facilities you need for a great day out with the kids, there are barbeques, picnic tables, shady trees, toilet facilites and a large undercover area. The recently installed playground is fully fenced and great for children of all ages, with slides, tunnels and plenty of climbing features. Smooth pathways through the gardens are very pram friendly and are great for bikes or scooters too.
Innisfail is an hour south of Cairns, famous for its distinctive Art Deco architecture and riverside location, you'll also find the Australian Sugar Museum, the Johnstone River Crocodile Park, Paronella Park and the Ma:mu Canopy Walkway nearby.
