The car trip from the Daintree to the Atherton tablelands was just stunning. Within such a short distance there is so much diverse landscape. You can see it all from the termite mounds, the sugar cane, the banana plantations, the granite boulders, and the avocado...More

We've stayed a number of times and still haven't seen and done everything we want to do. The scenery makes driving a pleasure and the waterfalls and lakes are spectacular. We have always been able to see a platypus at the viewing platform at Yungaburra...More
