The tablelands, so named because it is the geographical name for the general flat arable land atop the great dividing range that forms the backdrop to Cairns. The tableland comprises townships by the name Kuranda, Mareeba, Tolga, Atherton, Malanda, Milla Milla and Lake Tinaroo. It is home to great coffee growers, fruit growers such as pawpaw, mango and avocados and holds such wonders as the curtain fig, lake Eacham and Lake Barrine and it’s amazing tea house and walking track where you can see Kauri pines that are many hundreds of years old. You can taste great chocolate, yogurt, cheeses and other dairy delights as well as wines and great cottage industry produce. There is far more than one hat I have mentioned so investigate further for all the sites and experiences of the tablelands.
