It was a lovely break from the Townsville heat. Lake Paluma is beautiful and has good facilities although it is quite a long, rough drive to get there. It would have been a fantastic day out if we had packed a picnic.
We went on a Tuesday and there was no food at either the Eco Resort or local Inn. The resort only caters for guests and the inn is closed Tuesday to Thursday. The resort is 'making signs' as we drove 40km in and out, to find out we could not get lunch there. We were annoyed that the maps showed food at 2 locations when there was nothing available during the week. We would have had lunch and spent the day there but had to leave Paluma to get lunch.
We were sent to the closest place, Frosty Mango, which was past the entry to Paluma and further along the highway towards Big Crystal Creek. Lunch there was basic, but good, and the ice creams were delicious. They also had a selection of cakes that looked nice. See notes at Big Crystal Creek and Lake Paluma also.
