Atherton Tablelands

Heritage Trail

Heritage Trail

A drive amid the natural beauty of the Atherton Tablelands is an immersive experience that does so much more than soothing the traveller’s soul and delighting the senses.

Discover interesting and engaging facts about the region’s rich mining heritage, forestry and farming traditions along with newer agricultural industries, and the cultural practices of the local Indigenous people.

The Heritage Trail will take you to pretty, heritage-listed country towns that have retained the links to their past through quaint architecture and friendly, old-fashioned service. Historic villages, living museums, and the sign-posted sites of World War II military encampments all provide a fascinating insight into the history of the Atherton Tablelands.
