The Atherton Tablelands are short trip from Palm Cove and make a great day trip away from the coast. The tableland is an agricultural area with a range of crops and produce. You will still see the sugar cane fields but you will also see bananas, avocado, tea, coffee, pumpkins, strawberries, blue berries, dairy farms, cheese makers, tropical wineries and everyone’s favorite, chocolate. The Skybury coffee plantation is just west of Mareeba and is a great stop for lunch or just a coffee. The view alone is worth the drive.
