Go to the cafe, feed the rosellas and visit Queen Mary Falls
The Falls Cafe is located in exactly the right location. Sitting beside the Spring Creek Road opposite Queen Mary Falls, it is either a welcome break for people who have just driven over the Main Range from Boonah or who have driven up from Killarney to see the various falls.

The cafe is part of the Queen Mary Falls Caravan and Tourist Park but it sits out front in the perfect position for visitors. If you are visiting the cafe then park out front, but if you are visiting the waterfall opposite then it is better to park at the Queen Mary Falls Picnic area directly across the road.

The cafe offers great country fair. Breakfast starts at 8:30 and there is a heavy emphasis on eggs, bacon and sausages, all served in large portions. For lunch there are a range of classic and gourmet burgers to choose from. Of course don't forget the selection of coffee and cake. Like many other places in the Killarney district, the emphasis is on great local ingredients.

The cafe itself has seating inside as well as out on the shaded deck. While the cafe lacks a view, it is a pleasant place to sit and relax.

Even if you don't plan to eat at the cafe it is worth crossing the road to see the Rosellas that come to enjoy the bird feeders out front. You can buy small packets of bird seed from the cafe and the birds will eat the seed out of your hands (or more likely head straight to the bird seed packet.)

The cafe also has a selection of local souvenirs and produce so it is worth popping in for a look. The owners Louise and Mark will be happy to answer any questions that you have. Overall this is the best stop on the Spring Creek Road scenic drive.

The Queen Mary Falls Caravan and Tourist Park is also a great place to stay while you are in the area. You can camp on the wide grassy fields, park your caravan under a tree or enjoy the comforts of a cabin. Features include being surrounded by farmland, visited by wildlife including kangaroos, possums, bilbies and birds, fire pits for a camp fire, as well as a great camp kitchen.

The Caravan and Tourist Park is also a great place to stay, whether you are camping, caravaning or prefer a cabin
