Brett was our knowledgeable and entertaining guide and driver.We enjoyed the whole experience the winding roads, the views from the mountains and the various walks and waterfalls and towns. Lunch was at inisfail.The ecology changes as the the temperature falls and is dependent on which side the rain falls. Advise to select a guide... More

Visits in past years have been beautiful. Waterfalls water depleted, hills brown Paronella Park microbats locked up as other priorities are being attended. All still definately worth visiting - loved the wind farm: like something from Sci-Fi!!!

Travelled to Maranda to Coffee Works, then through Atherton, visited half a dozen waterfalls, followed by the skywalk and finished up at the castle for the night tour. Probably too much for the elderly or kids to do in one day, but it is possible

I did this trip in 2013 and it was great fun. The lakes and waterfalls were incredible. Unfortunately the tour I was on wasn't long enough.

This place is magic. Staff great and helpful. One night at their caravan park included in the admission price and then can go back for the tours for free for the next 2 years. Great. Enjoyed it, and planning on going back to see what has been done since last visit. Waterfalls around Atherton Tablelands spectacular, green, cool, best place... More

I really enjoyed this adventure. The castle was special and the tablelands was spectacular.A must see! The waterfalls,giant fig tree, Skybury coffee and the Mungali cheese factory were enjoyable. The only thing about the tour package of the region was that it was a bit rushed. When I go again I will take a hire car and go at a... More
