Beautiful valley, farmland and rainforest backdrop
World War 2 bombsite
A little north of Mossman, the turnoff to the small community of Miallo leads to the beautiful Whyanbeel Valley with its many acres of sugar-cane set against a lush backdrop of rainforested hills.
Whyanbeel is the local Aboriginal name for a canoe.
As you follow the meandering road past cane farms, picturesque creeks, tropical fruit farms and gardens you may catch a glimpse of the impressive High Falls cascading down the hillside above you.
Drive along Bamboo Creek Road on your way back to the main Mossman to Daintree road and you will pass a small memorial to a World War 2 bombing.
