Tully proximity and precipitation

Tully on the Far North Queensland east coast is the wettest town in Australia because here the Great Diving Range almost touches the sea and it starts to rain as we approach. This is the first rain of the trip so far (a month). Tully has a busy shopping strip sandwiched between the sugar mill and the mountains. In the park there’s a 7.9 metre high concrete gumboot signifying the amount of rainfall of 1950. Inside, the gumboot is lined with photos of memorable floods. Rain or not you can’t help but love this little town and they love their rain.

The sugar mill is in operation with a charming sugar diorama in front
