“A nice drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

If you're looking for a way to fill in a day, take a drive to Atherton via the Gillies Range. Have a look at Curtain Fig Tree, Dinner Falls and the Crater at Mt Hypipamee, and enjoy the lush green countryside.

“When it's a little steamy on the coast head to the hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Expand your tropical north experience up to the beautiful Tablelands. Crystal clear swimming on Summer days & log fire nights in Winter. Lovely

“Green and Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Waterfalls, verdant rolling hills, highland rainforest, the southern tablelands area and the coast around Mission beach comprise the most beautiful part of Australia I have ever seen.

“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Love the waterfalls and crater lakes. There are so many green hills with clouds in amongst them. The cool air of the mountains is such a reprieve from the coast. Lake Barrine's fresh scones and bottomless tea and coffee are just yum.
