Attractions

The towns of Mareeba, Kuranda, Tolga, Atherton, Malanda, Tinaroo, Kairi, Millaa Millaa, Ravenshoe, Yungaburra and Herberton make up the Atherton Tablelands with lots of accommodation in either motel, caravan park and units as well as Homestay.

You can enjoy barramundi and fresh water fishing, cruise and swim the lakes, historic steam train rides and birdwatching.

World heritage rainforests... mountains... rivers... lakes in extinct volcanos and magnificent waterfalls. All this is around an hour from the coast and about as far from where the outback starts.

That's just part of this benign and fertile plateau reaching up to 1000 metres above sea level. Primitive ferns hang from and around giant Kauri pines as they've done for hundreds of years. There's strangler figs with roots hanging more than 15 metres to the ground.

Tree climbing kangaroos, cassowaries, possums and bower birds inhabit the rainforests while platypus play in the rivers and streams of the area. There's even a vineyard and most houses have fireplaces for the cold winter nights.

Swim in the crater lakes of Eacham and Barrine; go bush walking around Euramo, Mt. Hypipamee, and Wongabel State Forest, and birdwatch Bromfield Swamp.

Accommodation ranges from old classic hotels, motels and guest houses to caravan parks and farm stays. We recommend you take the time to visit the excellent restaurants, markets, galleries and art and craft shops.

The lake is a great place to swim, sail, ski, windsurf, fish, camp and explore by houseboat.

Go ballooning at dawn, horseriding, cruising on a rainforest lake, pick your own strawberries. Join an expert guide on a walk into World Heritage rainforest.

Each town has its special attractions: Mareeba's annual rodeo, Tolga's homestead park and wood craft gallery, Atherton's crystal caves, art gallery, Chinese joss house and steam train; Yungaburra's village square, heritage walk and clock museum, Millaa Millaa's waterfall circuit, Malanda's natural history museum, Herberton's historic village, Ravenshoe's timber crafts and wide waterfall.

Travel west of Mareeba to Chillagoe's superb limestone caves.

Scenic roads lead to the tablelands from the coast and outback and tours leave from the coast daily.
