Atherton Tablelands Tours
Experience the variety of an Atherton Tablelands Tour with spectacular scenery, quality food and wine, informative history and unique wilderness and wildlife. On an Atherton Tablelands Tour you could visit the famous Curtin Fig Tree and Babinda Boulders, explore secluded rainforest or sample a local tropical fruit wine from the region.
Your day begins with a scenic drive up the Gillies Range, overlooking breathtaking Mulgrave Valley. Enjoy morning tea at Lake Barrine Teahouse where you have the choice to take a wildlife cruise on the old volcano, go for a swim, or enjoy a rainforest walk to the massive 1,000-year-old Kauri Pines. The amazing Curtain Fig Tree will inspire a photo or two, then it's on to Millaa Millaa Falls. Lunch is taken in a cute little restaurant in a small country town. Continue on to the inspiring Paronella Park for a guided tour of the Spanish Castle ruins, with time to yourself to explore this amazing piece of history. Not forgetting the mammoth and spectacular Mena Creek Falls. Our last stop heading back to Cairns is the Babinda Boulders, a place shrouded in Aboriginal myth, with an extremely dense rainforest jungle by crystal waters where we may spot the elusive Platypus!
