Atherton Tablelands Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences


  • Milla Milla Falls in Atherton Tablelands is a great inclusion for Australian tours.

The Atherton Tablelands is a picturesque fertile plateau situated south west of Cairns in Queensland. However, the terrain is varied and includes ancient forests, woodlands, wetlands and volcanic crater lakes. It is a veritable playground with so much to offer the visitor on an Australia vacation.

The Tablelands are very important to the birdwatcher as it has over 500 different species of birds. It also has a selection of typical Australian wildlife including the unusual platypus and the tree kangaroo.

The best way to see the Tablelands is to take a self drive tour and take in some or all of the following highlights. Kuranda is a mountain village with excellent walking trails. Attractions here are river cruises, koala sanctuaries and the skyrail rainforest cableway.

Wooroonooran National Park contains the two highest mountains in Queensland and has an abundance of beautiful waterfalls plus there are 500 different species of trees. Millau Millau again has magnificent photogenic waterfalls and panoramic lookouts.

Lake Tinaroo is best seen by driving around it in order to appreciate its beauty. Facilities offered are fishing, water skiing and windsurfing. Granite Gorge is a very scenic location with a number of walking tracks and swimming holes. It is here one can feed the many tame wallabies and get to know them up close.

There are many other locations in the Atherton Tablelands which are well worth visiting in this fascinating region of Northern Queensland. C’mon say G’day Downunder. Book one of our Australia vacations today and start exploring!
