2-Day Tour Atherton Tableland



In addition to the program of the Atherton Tablelands Highlights Day Tour, you are travelling off the beaten tourist tracks into further areas of the Tablelands and into the adjoining Outback. Marvel at Australia's deepest crater and widest waterfalls. Stay overnight in a thermal oasis in the dry bush. The next day starts with a journey into the past to rock paintings, which cannot be found in any travel guide, and into a "living" ghost town of the pioneering times.
