PRIVATE TOURING ONLY
Another beautiful region often overlooked is the spectacular Tablelands area slightly southwest of Port Douglas. The Atherton Tablelands offers a district rich in National Parks, diverse landscapes, habitats, waterfalls with a taste of the “Outback”.
With a variation of landscapes from fertile red soil, deep rainforest gullies, misty covered mountains, sweeping grass plains, agricultural lands to the green rolling hills of dairy cattle country, the Tablelands has a lot to offer.
Our day begins by driving west and climbing onto the Great Dividing Range. We stay at an elevated altitude of around 800 meters (2,600 feet) and head away from the coast to a slightly cooler, less humid climate and onto the Tablelands of the Atherton region. The tropical green colour gives way to pastoral lands, mirrored lakes and some brown of the “Outback’
Waterfalls, volcanic crater lakes, the Curtain Fig tree, (a giant strangling ficus that has devoured its host tree), isolated pockets of fragmented rainforests, giant termite mounds a myriad of animal and bird life and lots, lots more is found in this diverse region.
It’s Kangaroo country and there are many opportunities to seek out the elusive platypus and other more unusual natives.
Because there is so much to do here, The Tablelands tour is offered only on a private basis so we are able to create the tour that suits you, your family or companions for a totally unique and tailor made experience.
