Ravenshoe - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located 920 metres above sea level on the Atherton Tableland, Ravenshoe is Queensland’s highest town and famous for its quality cedar timber. In the early 70’s it also came to the notice of all Australians due to the anti-world heritage listing protesters, who didn't want to lose logging rights to large portions of the surrounding rainforest.

This publicity also brought to our attention the ideal climate that this town basks in, being relatively cool due to its altitude whilst in a tropical location. This soon brought an influx of alternative lifestylers that gave the town a new lease on life.

The biggest tourist attraction in town would have to be the Railco restored train, journeys that take place each weekend to Carrington Falls.
 

Other items of interest are the Millstream Falls National Park and the Nganyaji Interpretive Centre part of the Queensland Heritage Trails Network showcases the lifestyles of the local aboriginal tribe the Jirrbal people.

Details include how the cooked food and made porridge and other foods from toxic nuts. This tribe also made well developed roads to link settlements amongst their lands.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
