The elevation, rainfall and soil types in the Atherton Tablelands has produced an incredibly diverse and beautiful region. There is a prolific diversity in natural flora and fauna, ranging from tropical highland rainforests to dry tropical savannah. In addition, historic volcanic activity, water, soils and diverse growing conditions have supported development of a wide range of agricultural and horticultural cropping operations. The region’s farmers and support services represent, in most cases, best international practice in farming in a tropical environment.
We combine a fabulously invigorating trek & pilates program with a full day of sampling the culinary delights to be found here. A wonderful opportunity to escape day to day life, reconnect with nature and enjoy all the Tablelands has to offer.
Midday transfer from Cairns to Atherton in a private bus with your fellow trekkers. Check into accommodation and relax before enjoying our first pilates session on our outside deck. Later we will have our first dinner with group, including a pre-trek briefing. (D)
A morning stretch follows breakfast. Private transfer in a 4WD to start of trek at Herberton. We will be walking along old logging roads, through beautiful forests with a variety of flora. Enroute we will take a relaxed pace, stopping to enjoy our packed lunch. Today is lengthy, however the terrain is not difficult and we will enjoy being in nature without the distractions of day to day life. Another stretching session is available on return to our accommodation. Dinner tonight at Yungaburra Hotel. (B/L)
Pilates session this morning before our foodie tour commences. We will travel by bus to an idyllic country farm, where we will enjoy a scrumptious breakfast in a lovely gazebo. The day continues with several stops where we will taste a wide variety of foods from this rich agricultural area, including cheeses, chutneys, chocolates, yoghurts, fruit & nuts. This is followed by a visit to a distillery producing vodka, gin, whisky and rum, and finished off with Tablelands coffee. optional pilates session (if you can!) (B/L/D)
A morning stretch to set us up for our last trekking day, working off what we ate yesterday! Though shorter, some sections of this track mean a steeper climb, so it will certainly get our hearts started! We trek through a variety of terrain, with a short exposed section undertaken early in the day before the heat. Our climbs along this well maintained track are rewarded with beautiful views of the Atherton Tablelands, and, hopefully, some good bird sightings. After we complete our trek, we will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, before the return drive to Cairns. (B/L)
