The Atherton Tablelands are dominated by volcanic formations, tropical fruit and vegetable plantations, and dairy and grazing farms. Atherton is the ‘capital’ of the lovely Tropical Tablelands, a land of beautiful lakes, waterfalls, rich red soil and tropical rainforest. Here, the temperature is cooler, the pace is slower and there is a feeling of relaxation in the air. The fertile Tableland area is famous for producing peanuts, maize and potatoes. The area also has a number of natural attractions such as the Curtain Fig Tree, Millaa Millaa Falls, crater lakes and amazing rock formations.
