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.

The Atherton Tableland is a blend of the best attractions of the tropics; a combination of nature and lifestyle at its finest. Among the World Heritage listed rainforests, national parks, mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls are some of Australia’s richest agricultural lands and charming small townships. Biologists have described the spectacular rainforests of the Wet Tropics as the “greatest celebration of life on earth”.

The farm and grazing lands are “the food bowl” of the northern tropics – yielding a constant supply of fruit, vegetables and grains to local and export markets. Here settlers from all over the world share their arts, crafts, music and festivals.

For visitors, the Atherton Tablelands present opportunities for bush walking, mountain biking, bird watching, a wildlife cruise, marsupial spotting, hot air ballooning and water sports as diverse as fishing and white water rafting. Winding roads lead to spectacular lookouts and waterfalls, and highlights include Australia’s widest waterfall – Millstream Falls – and many others flowing all year round, the deep blue waters of extinct volcano crater lakes,

Plan to stay at least five days, as there is so much to see and do.
