Description

Innisfail (from Irish: Inis Fáil) a town and locality in the Cassowary Coast Region in Far North Queensland, Australia. The town was originally called Geraldton until 1910. It is the major township of the Cassowary Coast Region and is well renowned for its sugar and banana industries, as well as for being one of Australia's wettest towns.

We stopped at Innisfail a couple of times during our last caravan trip through north Queensland.  Once on our trip north to Cairns and enjoyed lunch in the park overlooking the North Johnstone River. We parked the car and caravan near Jubilee Bridge at the junction of South Johnstone and North Johnstone Rivers where you can find public toilets, picnic tables, boat ramp and fishing spots. This is only a couple of blocks off the main highway and close to the Centre of the City.  Innisfail is a very hilly town with a number of old buildings showcasing Art Deco architecture. A map of the Town Walk can be collected from the Tourist Information Centres explaining these interesting buildings.

On our return journey from Cairns we once again stopped at Innisfail to take a look at the BIG4 Innisfail Mango Tree Tourist Park on Couche Street. This Park has lovely tropical gardens and is located in a nice quiet area away from the Bruce Highway.

Innisfail is only a short distance to the well known tourist attraction of Paronella Park at Mena Creek - highly recommended. This beautiful place was the vision of Jose Paronella who made all the structures, mixing the cement by hand and working long hours for many years. It really needs to be seen to be believed and I recommend that you take both a night tour and a day tour to fully appreciate the beauty of Paronella.

Other things we did in the area included:

  • drive along Canecutter Way through vast sugar cane fields
  • visit Murdering Point Winery - interest wines made from tropical fruits - the Mango wine was my favourite
  • see the Babinda Boulders in Babinda Creek
  • Lunch at Babinda Bakery for great pies
  • Mission Beach

We did not make it to many of the falls and lookouts near Innisfail - I guess we will have to head back.
