Innisfail was originally known as Geraldton until 1910. It is the major township on this Cassowary Coast Region and is well known for its sugar and banana industries although I did see a few farms growing avocados. Being an old town that was once very prosperous it has some beautiful preserved buildings.

Tully is also a sugar and banana growing area. But with an average annual raining exceeding 4,000 millimetres (160 inches), and the highest ever rainfall in a populated area of Australia (7,900 millimetres / 310 inches) in 1950, Tully has the name as being the wettest town in Australia. Although a rivalry exists between Tully and nearby town of Babinda for the title. In 2003 this giant gumboot (the Golden Gumboot) was erected as a monument to the towns climate.
