  • Helicopter tours over the Reef, Rainforest and Outback
  • Follow the Tropical Tablelands food trails to local fruit wineries and distilleries, tropical fruit tastings, visit coffee plantations and mango orchards
  • Spend a day in Chillagoe, exploring the ancient limestone caves system
  • Drive to the Southern Tablelands, a land of misty mountains and rainforest encircled crater lakes
  • Luxurious Port Douglas and trips to the Great Barrier Reef are only one hour’s drive away
  • The tropical city of Cairns, with its exciting shopping and huge range of activities is also only an hour away.
  • Birding in the ‘Golden Triangle’ from Mt Lewis and Julatten to the Atherton Tablelands and Michaelmas Cay.
