Atherton Tablelands/Australia

Introducing Atherton Tablelands

Tropical green gives way to heaven-sent country­side as one moves through the sensuous Tablelands, inland from the coast between Innisfail and Cairns, and the site of the continent’s most recent volcanic activity, some 10, 000 years ago. With an altitude of more than 1000m in places, the Tablelands offers some of the best self-drive terrain around, but the trick is not to rush it – this is slow travel at its best and a couple of days exploring the Tablelands’ waterfalls, lakes and national parks is seriously relaxing.
