Atherton Tablelands Australia Information Accommodation

The Atherton Tableland also known as the Cairns Highlands is just one hour's drive from Cairns but seems a million miles away from its coastal cousin.

It's a different world with cooler temperatures and country-style hospitality.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and the humidity of the coast, drive through lush rainforest, rich farming land and on to the remote outback, a diverse Atherton Tablelands holiday awaits you

From the Atherton township, toss a coin and follow any of the scenic circuit drives which criss-cross the Tableland. Lake Tinaroo is close by with a variety of water sports &
activities offered.

Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands has existed largely unchanged since 1910, with more than 30 heritage listed buildings, as well as cafes, arts and crafts shops, bars and
restaurants. Put the famous Curtain Fig Tree on the must-see list, it's just minutes from Yungaburra. Standing 50m tall and spreading to 39m wide at the base, the tree is more
than 800 years old. The Yungaburra produce and craft markets are held on the fourth Saturday each month.

Nearby Mareeba was once the centre of a thriving tobacco industry and the town's large Italian population is testament to the people who pioneered the industry. Don't forget to stop off at the Coffee Works for coffee tasting and to take home some local Tableland coffee.

Around the tiny town of Milla Milla, which dates back to 1908, the circuit covers a 16km scenic drive taking in Milla Milla, Zillie and Elinjaa Falls, some of the most picturesque sites of the region.

Malanda is in the heart of the Tableland’s tempting taste buds with delicious, locally grown produce, dairy products.

Further south is Chillagoe with its old mines and caves to explore. Or Undara's ancient lava tubes. There is also the Rainforest village of Kuranda with its Rainforestation,
Kuranda markets and the Pamagirri Aboriginal Dancers.

Be immersed in another world when you indulge in one of many accommodation properties nestled in the Atherton Tablelands region. Bed & Breakfast retreats, relaxing holiday homes & cottages, retreats, motel accommodation, backpackers and more... you'll never want to leave!  [Atherton Tablelands Accommodation]
