15 Things To See & Do in the Atherton Tablelands, Australia (2020)

There’s so many adventures to enjoy in the Atherton Tablelands that it’s one of those places you keep coming back to and never get bored of.

Located in the bucolic hinterland just an hour’s drive from Cairns and Port Douglas, it’s long been a popular choice for locals & tourists wanting a nature escape away from the humid coast.

Most many people come here to relax, enjoy the spectacular scenery and switch off from the real world. And others, like me, also come for the adventure!

From exploring hiking and biking trails, to spotting endemic wildlife or literally chasing waterfalls – you’ll be dreaming about this place for a long time after you leave.

I’ve visited a handful of times and recently spent 12-action packed days here over Christmas, so I got to travel deep into the region and visit a lot of hidden gems that most tourists miss. One thing that surprised me was the prevalent heritage and history of the area, which you can explore further within some hiking tracks, villages and at a cool spot in this article. 😉

To help you plan your trip, I’ve compiled a collection of my favourite things to do in the the Atherton Tablelands with honest insights, tips and maps.

Happy planning!
