About the neighbourhood
We are ideally located in close proximity to a number of very diverse ecosystems: within an hour's drive (or much less) you can visit -the drier, open forests and savannah woodlands to the west and NW, -upland rainforests in the tablelands to the east and south, -the many wetlands all over the Atherton Tablelands (lakes, creeks and rivers, the Mareeba Wetlands; Hasties Swamp with its 2 storey bird hide is 15 minutes away) -the open rural and grassland areas (great for watching the many raptors and cranes) -coastal mangroves, lowland rainforest and sandy beaches are a good hour's drive away, via the Palmerston Highway
Getting around
To get the most out of your stay on the Atherton Tablelands, we recommend that you have/rent a vehicle. Airport transfers could be arranged, if required.
