On the bus from Cairns to Tully, you’ll travel through the sugar-growing town of Gordonvale; Babinda, known for its proximity to Queensland’s two highest mountains, Mount Bartle Frere and Mount Bellenden Ker; Innisfail, a hub of heritage-listed art deco architecture; and Mission Beach, a beautiful seaside town that’s perfect for a romantic getaway.
You’ll soon arrive in Tully, known for its bananas and sugar cane plantations, and for the Tully River, one of the best white-water rafting spots in Australia. Tully is also famous for being one of Australia’s wettest towns – make sure you snap a selfie with The Golden Gumboot, which commemorates Tully’s waterlogged history.
The Golden Gumboot’s height corresponds to the highest annual rainfall in a populated area of Australia, which was registered in Tully in 1950. You can climb an internal spiral staircase to the top of the Gumboot for views of the town, and explore the area’s history at the museum beside the boot.
