Read what one of our travellers has to say about Yungaburra!

Few people have heard of this amazing little town near the Atherton Tablelands of Queensland. I wanted my husband to see the beautiful rainforests and fauna that exists there. Not only were we besotted by the amount of free swimming platypus that frolicked in the Pattersons Creek, but to actually find and observe tree kangaro, was astonishing. They are Lumholz tree kangaroo, endemic to the area and rarely seen in the wild. We were gobsmacked and on standing beneath the tree they were in, could not see them from below. These are human sized and climb a tree like a koala.

Markets are held monthly with all the tastes of tropical fruit etc. If you can combine the two a real treat awaits you. We made our way from stall to stall filling up on treats for a most healthy breakfast. The town boasts a range of restaurants including a beaut Italian restaurant. Many a back packer passes by along the walking tracks, and share the sightings at the Platypus viewing stations.

This town is close to the new arboretum, planted in honour of our newest war heroes lost overseas. The lakes, waterfalls, walks and scenery is outstanding in the region. The Day trip to the Barrier Reef is only an hour or so away along with Kuranda and its many offerings is even closer. The Ulysses butterfly (vibrant blue in colour) and Sunbird( yellow) are well worth sighting.

Exceptional! 5/5

Breathtaking

4 of 5
My family and I spent Christmas here, on arrival we were greeted by stunning views over the Atherton Tablelands, with beautiful cool breezes from the deck. Place is centrally located to many hotspots on the Tablelands. An excellent place for large families needing some space. Owners were very welcoming and pleasant.
