 Self drive this delightfully green, nature loving and waterfall significant southern section of the Atherton Tablelands. Allow a full day. Ravenshoe is 40 mins drive from Atherton, as to is Millaa Millaa. Once there, you will never be in your vehicle for more than 10 - 15 minutes. You will cover no more than 200 kms in the day, but see some really beautiful landscapes and attractions.
Here at Atherton Blue Gum B&B, we will provide you with a map and local knowledge that will make your day not only interesting but also special. Following are the highlights in order......
  • There is a wide variety of  waterfalls, some are visited by many, some a very secluded, we can direct you to what you wish to experience.
  • A great place to spend half a day, is "Platypus Bend", especially if you like walking without the tourist "masses".
  • Tarzali Lakes - Barramundi fish catching and platypus viewing.
·     “Windy Hill” Windfarm - Spectacular site for this wind generated electricity.
·    Ravenshoe -  The highest town in Queensland. Visit the Historic Steam Railway and Wins Art Gallery.
