Golden Gumboot

Butler Street, Tully QLD 4854

Originally the Golden Gumboot was a competition between Tully, Innisfail and Babinda as to which town is the wettest in Australia. The winner for the competition (since 1970) was awarded with a rubber boot and with an annual rainfall of up to seven metres - Tully was the winner. The Golden Gumboot Festival is dedicated to the fact that Tully is a 'pretty wet place'. In this small sleepy town, locals get together once a year for this festival, of which the highlight is the gumboot throwing competition. The person who can throw a size eight gumboot the greatest distance wins. The festival begins in the afternoon with a 7.9 metre high Golden Gumboot being paraded through Tully's main street. This family orientated fun festival has as many things to do involving gumboots as possible including; tenpin bowling using gumboots, banana packing in gumboots, decorated gumboots...and the list goes on... Other activities include, food market stalls, displays, children's activities, judging of the Golden Girl, Golden Princess, and Golden Oldie quest and a big evening of live entertainment.

Tully Gorge National Park

Cardstone Road, 40 kilometres north-west of Tully, Tully QLD 4854
In this park, the Tully River plunges down the Cardwell Range, through the densely forested Tully Gorge, in Australia's wettest area, part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Heavy rainfall encourages lush tropical vegetation and ensures plenty of white-water on the Tully River. The park can be accessed from four different points, three on the coast near Tully and one from the Evelyn Tableland. Relax and enjoy a picnic beside the river in the Tully Gorge day-use area. Set up camp in the pleasant Tully Gorge camping area to enjoy the pleasant surrounds. If you're feeling adventurous, join an organised white-water rafting tour or take a stroll along the short, wheelchair-accessible Butterfly walk to learn about butterfly food plants. Climb the very steep and challenging Mount Tyson track to the 678 metre summit of Mount Tyson and enjoy views of the Tully township, coastline and Hinchinbrook Island from the lookout. Have a picnic and swim at Alligators Nest day-use area. In the tableland section of the park, walk to the Tully Gorge lookout to enjoy spectacular views of the deep gorge and Tully River below or mountain bike on the park's internal roads and firebreaks. .
