The Atherton Tableland is an amazing region to visit. The temperature is very comfortable, no humidity like places on the coast. The Herberton Historical Village is a MUST SEE attraction. Allow at least one day, but you could stay more. Admission is very reasonable and...More

What a great drive up to the Tablelands from Babinda. Very windy drive if you take the route through Malanda back down. There is a lot to see and do up here and we only had a day which we spent seeing all the waterfalls....More

We just stayed at On The Wallaby. It was economy friendly, clean, cosy, super friendly and the food is sourced locally and is excellent. Not over the top prices either. Highly recommended!
