Things to do in the Atherton Tablelands when staying with us
Local attractions

Situated about halfway between Atherton and Mareeba, Qld, Walkamin is ideally placed to visit the many Atherton Tablelands attractions, like the Mining Museum at Herberton and historic Chillagoe, with its cave and mining history.

If you are into coffee, there are many places to visit – Coffee Works in Mareeba has a display of historic coffee makers and tasting of a large choice of coffee plus chocolate and other tempting goodies. Jaques Coffee Plantation on the way to Kuranda has tours of the property, a film showing the Jaques family history in growing coffee and the obstacles they have overcome. They also have coffee and liqueur tasting plus a fine dining area. A third place for coffee addicts is Skybury Coffee Plantation, where once again they also serve meals – this time with a wonderful view from the veranda.

Stronger drinks and food

A very short drive from the caravan park takes you to the Mount Uncle Distillery and the Bridge Cafe set among a plantation of tall lady fingers banana plants.

They make delicious coffee liqueurs at de Brueys Boutique Wines – but enough about drinks.

There’s a great choice of places to eat in all the little towns on the Tableland and whatever cuisine you prefer you will find it catered for somewhere not too far away.

Working dairy farm

There’s a thrill you’ll experience when you include Gallo Dairyland to your “Travelling Queensland” itinerary.

With the farming enterprise positioned between Atherton, Malanda and Yungaburra you will be pleasantly surprised to find a fully operational dairy farm; a gourmet cheese factory; a sensational café/restaurant; and last but not least, the most beautiful hand-crafted chocolate.

Gallo Dairyland


Every weekend there are markets somewhere on the Tableland. Kuranda, with its market-like shops and eating places that are open all week, is within easy reach and the large shopping complex at Smithfield is at the bottom of the hill on the way to Cairns.

Other shopping

For other shopping there’s a Coles and Target plus an IGA in Mareeba or, if you are looking for a bigger choice, the Super IGA in Atherton has a huge range. There’s also a Big W and a Woolworths in Atherton.

Irrigation Country

Crops flourish on the Tableland helped by the climate and the availability of water channelled from the scenic Tinaroo Dam. Set in rugged bushland there are a number of popular camping spots along the banks of the huge storage area.

Tablelands Tourism


They call Mareeba, Qld, the Ballooning Capital of Australia and coaches bring travellers from Port Douglas and Cairns before dawn to watch the balloons being inflated and then to soar over the green and fertile area around Mareeba.

Visitors to Walkamin Caravan Park with time to spare often book a standby trip and save a lot of money.

Above the trees

An outing not to be missed is the cable car ride from Smithfield to Kuranda.

Sitting in an enclosed cabin with huge windows you get fabulous views as you climb up above the trees.

You can either do a one-way trip with someone to pick you up at the top, or do the return trip back down. There’s another choice – you can catch a train in Cairns that climbs up the mountain to the Kuranda Railway Station.
