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.

Beautiful home in a very nice area!

5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at the Casa Bella Vista at Holloways Beach. We appreciated all of the bedrooms for our large family, otherwise we would had to split up into 2 groups. The landscaping was exceptional and the pool was very nice. The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom are stunning. The location is perfect, across the street from a beautiful beach and only 10 minutes from the airport. We also enjoyed the pub down the street. Would highly recommend for a group that needs a lot of bedrooms. - Needham family from Canada

River Hideaway

5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely two night sojourn at this hideaway over the Johnstone River. Our hosts, John and Pam, showed us the ropes and made us very welcome and their border collie Charlie, sensing that we are dog lovers accompanied us on walks and sat with us on the deck for evening drinks. The studio apartment is very comfortable and well stocked for the interested cooks. Our privacy was ensured but we were also able to interact with our hosts if we wished. I'd happily recommend this accomodation to interested parties.
