LAKE TINAROO & THE ATHERTON TABLELANDS

Lake Tinaroo and the Atherton Tablelands is one of North Queensland’s best kept secrets. Elevated high in the mountains above the Great Barrier Reef and coastal beaches, the Tablelands boast a temperate climate which is comfortable year round.

The region has been well utilised by the locals of the area for family holidays for generations. In recent times, this hidden gem has been discovered more and more by touring Australians and adventurous international visitors, who appreciate the diversity of attractions, flora and fauna.

The vast waters of Lake Tinaroo, which was dammed in the 1950s, provides families and water enthusiasts a safe environment to enjoy a variety of water sports including fishing, water skiing, sailing, swimming, canoeing, rowing, kayaking and wind surfing.

When staying at Limni House, your closest township is Yungaburra which has long been recognised as the Atherton Tableland’s food and accommodation capital. Boasting country charm and buildings which date back to the early 1900s, Yungaburra has restaurants, a spa, markets, grocery store and a butcher.

Basic pantry staples such as bread and milk, pizzas and other takeaway food can be purchased from the Lake Eacham Roadhouse, which is open daily from 6am – 7pm.

A traditional farming area with rich volcanic soil, you can often buy local produce from street stalls, or visit one of the local stores such as ‘The Humpy’, which is located a short drive out of Atherton towards Mareeba.
