The Atherton tablelands is a wonderful locations with rainforest and rivers to enjoy. Certainly a 'must stop and take time' place. Atherton has some great eateries and tours available to the traveller. Cool nights mid year, so bring some woollies with you.

Lozza picked my up outside Cairns City Backpackers at 8am. The bus cheered me on as i opened the door successfully. With a short stop at maccas for a nice brekky we were on the road. Loz knew everything. He had amazing stories and had a great playlist of music we could singalong too. I was the only one swimming... More

When driving up to the Atherton Tablelands from Port Douglas the first landscape we encountered was termite mounds in very dry sparse bushland. We thought, hope this changes. It did. Once we hit Mareeba - and, yes, we did go to Coffee Works ( as we were asked by everyone in Queensland), the scenery changed into lush rolling hills and... More

The guide was good, had a lot of stories to tell us. We had time to enjoy at each spot we stoped to have a walk, to swim or to look for animals. The meal for lunch was good value for money.

This park is beautifully presented. The grounds were well maintained and very clean. The pool was lovely and well kept . The bbq area overlooking the pool was great, really comfy seating and protected from the weather. I stayed in a cabin which was very compact but perfectly equipped and lovely and clean. Reverse cycle air-con was great! The tent... More

After spending a few days in the Daintree region and not seeing the elusive Cassowary, we were amazed to see one only a few feet from the track to The Crater and Dinner Falls. The Crater was breathtaking and a wonder of nature. It's a must see when in the area.

There is only one way to really put this region to its best. That is to take photos with professional lenses and FULL PANORAMIC CAMERAS. You not only have the images, but are able to have them enlarged to major billboard size and beyond, without losing detail or contrast. Yes, you do pay a lot of money for such equipment,... More

Leaving Cairns by car it will be a full day trip. With many stops along the way. We travel up the Kuranda Range road to Kuranda. The Village in The Rainforest Many things to see, the children will love the Butterfly Farm. Where as the adults may prefer The German Tucker Wursthouse or The Golden Drop Winery. Leaving the village... More

So picture perfect! Did self drive from cairns during wet season - counted all the roadside waterfalls with my 3yo. Very green and beautiful. Would've like to set aside more time (then a day) to explore properly

The Atherton Tablelands is a beautiful part of Australia. I could be a bit bias since once upon a time I did live there for many years; but all the same all visitors have the same opinion. From the rainforest to the crater lakes and the rolling green hills of the farming areas. It has grown over the years but... More
