Tablelands Nature Tour


Full day tour from Port Douglas

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”.

Tablelands Nature Tour

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.

Frequently Asked Questions about this Tour

We do not operate Christmas or New Years Day.

Pickups and drop offs are complimentary from all Port Douglas accommodation /resorts /private accommodation. Pickup times will depend on the tour booked and where you will be staying.

Once a booking is confirmed a pickup time will be advised.

Between 4.30 and 5.00pm.

For your comfort light coloured clothing is always recommended. Try and disregard dark colours such as black, brown and dark blue as some insects such as mosquitoes and March flies are attracted to them.  Shorts and T/Shirt or light cotton shirt works best. Runners or flat sandals are fine, thongs/flip flops although acceptable are not advisable as you can slip in the rainforest when walking on wet surfaces or leaves.

Do not bring a large amount of cash. We do not recommend that you wear excess jewellery and try and keep your valuable engagement ring in the safe back at the resort. Do not wear it swimming. We also recommend that you do not wear your wedding ring whilst swimming. The cold temperature of the water in the stream will cause your finger size to shrink temporarily, aided by the movement of your hands as you swim, it can make it easy for the ring to slip off your finger without you being aware of it.

Umbrellas are supplied for each guest on board.
