It was a wonderful independent day trip by car.
I highly recommend to rent a car to drive there.
We drove from Cairns. We turned right at the intersection in Gordonvale, drove a lot of switch backs (you will feel sick) up to the top, stopped at Lake Barrine (toilet! restaurant and a small boat) crossed Yungaburra (a small deli, not opened an Italian restaurant along the street) , stopped at Curtain Fig( wonderful!), Malanda (a small superstore) , Malanda Falls(small) , Millaa Millaa Falls(wonderful. You can swim), and Panorella Park.
It was a quite long drive (over 250 km), but great day trip.
I highly recommend to bring your own lunch / some food and drink from Cairns. As I wrote, there was nothing special place to have lunch and dinner.
Panorella Park.....the admission fee is 42 AUD. IT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE. SUPER RIP-OFF
