Sunrise and Sunset Gazing on the Atherton Tablelands

You can enjoy some incredible views over the Atherton Tablelands, whether it's early morning dawn or late afternoon dusk.

Lake Eacham

Need us? We’ll be here. No matter what time of the day we see #LakeEacham we can never get enough of this incredible volcanic lake. Officially known as a maar, Lake Eacham is a volcanic crater that was formed thousands of years ago by two massive explosions from the superheating of groundwater. Today it’s a popular swimming location – and a stellar place to catch sunset.

Mareeba from above

Isn’t that just something? Taking to the skies above Mareeba Shire on a hot air ballon. With views stretching across the #AthertonTablelands enjoy your sunrise flight before celebrating the experience with a glass of bubbly or juice on landing.

Windin Falls

Although it may be a 70 minute hike to get to this view, the scenes waiting for you at Windin Falls are well worth every step. Is this spot on your must do Atherton Tablelands itinerary? We think it should be.

Lamb Range

Sunsets don’t come much better than this magnificent golden glow across Davies Creek National Park from Lamb Range. Come prepared with hiking boots and plenty of water for the challenge, but we can assure you the views are certainly worth it.

Mt Bartle Frere

Greeting the day the best way from the top of Mt Bartle Frere. Queensland’s tallest mountain stands 1,611m above sea level and is one for the bucket-list for all our experienced hikers out there. Will you be conquering this mountain in 2023?
