Itinerary

The Cairns Tablelands

 

The Cairns Tablelands (also known as the Atherton Tablelands) are a short drive from Cairns. After ascending the winding road of the Gillies Range you will find yourself 800 metres above sea level in an area of outstanding beauty – the Wet Tropics and Rainforest World Heritage area.

Out of the world’s nineteen families of primitive flowering plants, twelve can be found in this small area. 700 (out of a recorded 2,800) plant species are unique to this area and 315 mammal species call the Wet Tropics Rainforest home (13 of which are unique to this area). It really is like walking through Jurassic park, as many of the animals and plants that you are seeing have existed for over 100 million years.

Enjoy rare sightings of duck-billed platypus, Lumholtz tree kangaroos, and Ringtail possums, as your knowledgeable tour guides takes you to the secret hangouts of these and other rare rainforest inhabitants.
