A surprise on the Atherton Tablelands!

March 15th, 2017

It’s no secret that the Atherton Tablelands are one of my favourite places in Tropical North Queensland, therefore the world :)

A few weeks ago, Nico and I found some excuse to visit this gorgeous region. And he didn’t know what a surprise I had in store for him! When wandering around picturesque Yungaburra, we heard the rumble of a large powerful motorbike and went to investigate. A great bright yellow trike was pulling into the kerb in front of the historic Yungaburra Pub… when I greeted the rider and he replied with “You must be Steve” Nico realized that something was in the planning…

After all that excitement, we needed to cool off… and what better spot than under one of the Tablelands’ many waterfalls…this one at Malanda.

Stop searching! These are THE BEST RIBS IN CAIRNS…

What is it about this time of year that has me craving the best ribs in Cairns?



We have tried some good ribs over the years at Cairns restaurants

But these are the BEST RIBS IN CAIRNS without a doubt.I gotta get on down the the Waterbar and Grill

… and he’ll drink beer in a boat!

Well, there was no beer yesterday (although you can bring your own) when Nico and I headed out with Paradise Sportfishing. It was an idyllic day on the water and we watched in awe as our trusty skipper John netted a supply of shimmering bait-fish in the mangroves before heading down the inlet to catch ourselves some lunch.

We tried a few different locations, and did get numerous bites in the second spot. But nothing that we landed was suitable for eating. Nico was thrilled to land this beauty though!
