ALLANS WILDLIFE TOURS

The sights, sounds and smells of the Australian rainforest and bush mean more to you as you develop an understanding of their importance. Linking the sound to the animal you have just seen and its surroundings, you build a sensory map of your environment. Amusing stories about the plants and animals not only entertain you but fashion significant memories. As a teacher with a wide range of experience, Alan relates well to children.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

HOT AIR BALLONING

Sliding along hundreds of metres above the earth is one of the best ways to start the day on the Atherton Tablelands. It’s an early start and probably a strong coffee to prep for hot air ballooning. But the reward for getting up in the dark is a smooth ride over riveting scenery: most days a cloudless sky makes for a picture-perfect sunrise over the mountains. The Atherton Tablelands is known as the ballooning capital of the world because of its regular good weather.

RAINFOREST BOUNTY

We demand the best from ourselves, that’s why only the highest quality, locally sourced and grown ingredients go into our products to share with you.

FRESH PRODUCE MARKETS

Being able to rummage round a market on holiday is a real joy. It’s a leisurely stroll while shopping, taking a golden opportunity to meet local people, buy food and beverages grown in the area and just absorb the individual character of each town. And for those who like a second hand bargain you never know what gems you’ll find! Many on the Atherton Tablelands are in picturesque spots so include a market visit on your holiday plans. Most open around 7-7.30 am and finish just after noon.
