The Atherton Tablelands is another brilliant example of the beauty that abounds in Northern Queensland. Endless waterfalls, wildlife canoeing and mysterious places. The Crater is another one of those places that leaves you awestruck, an ancient hollow volcanic chimney filled with water it inspires the imagination as you peer into its depths. Lakes, rivers and creeks wind through farmland and rainforest, small cheery pubs and down to earth people to experience.
Giant Strangler Fig Tree, tea plantations and tropical fruit farms are all there for the visitor to experience. Aboriginal History, farmstays and lots of swimming holes.
Tree Kangaroos, birdlife and scenic highways this area is outstanding as you experience the diversity and the lifestyle as you cruise through the area. Take a flight in a hot air balloon to experience the awesome beauty of this region and after a great
day touring you are only a short distance away from Cairns.
