Thanks so much for your great feedback. Yes, please do recommend us. The Atherton Tablelands is so diverse and so much to see, and such a contrast to Cairns. People are really missing out on a wonderful experience if they don't get up here.

The staff are genuine and welcoming. In the heart of the Tablelands this homely hostel is a real antidote to the party vibes of Cairns. I loved it here. Why try to do the Tablelands in a day when there is so much to explore...More
