Atherton Tablelands

Tropical North Queensland is undeniably one of the most exciting and diverse regions to visit in Australia and the Atherton Tablelands sits at the very heart of it.

With its breathtaking waterfalls, scenic vistas at every turn, impressive lakes, lush rainforest and rugged outback, a visit to this region promises to be one of great contrast, beauty and  exploration.

People often ask what is the best thing about the Atherton Tablelands but if you have ever visited the region, you will have discovered there is more than one.

Visitors love to spend their days enjoying scenic country drives, leisurely boat cruises, wildlife spotting, experimenting with local food and unearthing the fascinating geological history.

Explore the gateways from the reef to the rainforest before you find yourself spoiled for choice in our stunning region.

Plan to stay at least five days, as there is so much to see and do.  Divide your time between the southern and northern regions on what will be an unforgettable self-drive journey, and see for yourself the changing landscape of our diverse region.
