If you ever actually find yourself wondering where to visit for some fun and an enjoyable experience, you should add the Atherton Tablelands region to your list. There are many reasons why it is seen as the perfect destination, including the following.
From historical records, the first people who settled in the region were dairy farmers. Take a walk at the Mungalli Creek Dairy for you to discover the most delicious and organic cheese that you could ever eat. You can also sample different dairy products such as ice cream, yoghurt and fresh milk. You can also talk to the farmers to learn more about organic farming.
While visiting the Atherton Tablelands region, you should take some time to roam around and discover the culture of the people. Going to their farmers market is the perfect way to spend a morning. Yungaburra Markets bring together many people who are looking to buy and sell fresh produce. It is also where you can interact and socialise with the locals that you meet while shopping at the market.
The Magnificent Hou Wang Temple
This temple dates back to the 1920s when Atherton Tableland received a lot of foreigners who were desperately in need of the gold in the area. At this time, a lot of Chinese nationals arrived in the country, and they were looking for a place to worship. They ended up creating the Hou Wang Temple. When they could no longer access the gold that brought them, they decided to leave. They, however, left the temple behind and it is now a good attraction centre.
Vast Water Bodies
People who enjoy water sports and activities such as kayaking and swimming will have a good time at Lake Barrine. There are also other water bodies that you can discover during your stay in Atherton. If you have an adventurous spirit, you will have quite a good time.
