Atherton is a town and locality on the Atherton Tablelands within the Tablelands Region, Far North Queensland, Australia. Venture out of the city with trips to Mamu Tropical Skywalk (in Innisfail), Babinda Boulders (in Babinda) and Mareeba (Granite Gorge Nature Park, Jaques Coffee Plantation, & more). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on nature at The Crystal Caves, don't miss a visit to The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour, explore the striking landscape of Hasties Swamp National Park, and contemplate the long history of Historic Village Herberton.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
