Gordonvale Things to Do: 5 reviews and 15 photos
Most visitors miss the opportunity to stop on the bank of the Mulgrave River in Gordonvale because there is no direct turn off from the Bruce Highway.
This is a lovely place called 'Green Patch' where the locals go for a swim and picnic/or bbq.
As you stroll along the bank you will get fantastic views of Walsh's Pyramid and looking back you will see the railway bridge and the sugar mill smoke stack.
There is a car park but the tracks to the river are dirt and have some nasty holes,so be careful you don't damage your car.It is drivable and walkable in the dry season but not in the wet season as this river usually floods.
You will also see burnt logs where people have built camp fires along the bank--it is not safe to venture here on your own or after dark as it is often used for drinking and sometimes intoxicated people get out of control.
But it is worth a look in my opinion.
