To the west and south, up on the Tablelands behind Cairns, the temperature is cooler and the landscape very different. Most of Cairns’ fresh produce originates here. The rolling green hills are perfect for dairy and beef cattle and the volcanic soil encourages an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Following the discovery of gold in the latter part of the 19th century, a host of charming townships, such as atherton and Mareeba, were founded and they still ooze australian pioneer spirit over a century later. The drive to these areas is extremely scenic, with the journey being as enjoyable as the destinations themselves.
