The Atherton Tablelands are part of Queensland’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics rainforest and lie just southwest of Cairns.

Hey Yol! I am usually a solo traveller myself and not naturally a "tour" style traveller either, so we try to incorperate these things on our tour by being more flexible and encouraging everyone to mingle amougst eachother, regardless who they came on tour with :-) Sometimes the best memories also include the people you meet along the way and the stories you make along the way. It's great to get out on tour regularly to see this too. Safe and Happy travels and thank you for visiting Cairns with us locals. Chels @ Barefoot Tours
