“Location Location”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We drove up to Karanda and stopped at the Baron Waterfalls where the scienic train makes it's way to and from Cairns. The views are beautiful. Lots of birds and bush wildlife was seen. We then drove onto Mereeba stopping at some coffee plantations and buying some local roasted beans. We then drove onto Atherton and the Spanish Castle. Make sure you allocate a day driving this area and there are so many different things to stop and look at.

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Atherton tablelands are beautiful. Waterfalls were magnificent. Paronella Park was an absolute treat. WELL WORTH THE DRIVE.We drove round trip from Palm Cove, Kuranda, Atherton, Innisfail, Palm Cove. Big day but well worth it.

“Parenella Park”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Just loved that a castle is out in the middle of nowhere. Lovely walk round the garden, a great tour(passionate) but she was difficult to understand

“Atherton Tableland drive”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Super drive up to Kuranda---terrific market stalls there with different, quality goods, do make sure u have home-made icecream from street stall van with the whacky retired chap. Fab icecream, had 2 & rarely eat it otherwise. Then on to Atherton & drive back to Cairns via Yungaburra and the Gillies highway, you won't regret it.
