Margit can offer many suggested itineraries to suit your requirements. The Atherton Tablelands is one of Queensland's most scenic areas with natural & manmade attractions  to suit all interests and abilities. 


There are stunning crater lakes to walk around or swim in, amazing lookouts, towering fig trees, incredible waterfalls  and for the fit and adventurous many walking tracks.


For the wildlife buff there are many 'must see' natural attractions including platypus viewing at Yungaburra, the Hasties Swamp Bird Hide, Bromfield Swamp for the crane roosting spectacular (seasonally winter and spring months) and the amazing Mt Hypipamee National Park for nocturnal spotlighting and cassowary viewing.


There are markets, museums and charming villages and for the gourmet traveller there are coffee & chocolate factories, tropical fruit farms, tropical wineries, distilleries and cheese dairies  all open to the public, all incredibly tempting.
